Tenkyu Ranten "Indigo Sky"


Azuma no Fumoto brewery is located at the foot of the sacred Ise Kumano Taisha Shrine in Tohoku, in the city of Nanyo, Yamagata Prefecture. Since 1896, the brewery has been committed to using only local rice & water. To encourage young people's interest in sake, this new brand "Tenkyu" was developed with students from Tohoku University of Art and Design. "Tenkyu" translates as "rainbow" & is also a pun since "Tenkyu" is pronounced like "thank you"-- in appreciation for sake drinkers loving their new brand of modern sake. Ranten "Indigo Sky" is a rare junmai daiginjo, perfect in every way with a clean & elegant sweetness, ripe fruit aromas & a clean yet rich finish. Pure yamagata-style yumminess!

Tasting Notes: Ripe, fruity aromas of pineapple and peach. On the palate it is silky smooth with a light sweetness and perfect balance.
