Rich juicy rice-laden flavors with funky aromas. Produced by Onda Shuzo in Nagaoka, a city located in the central part of Niigata Prefecture. As a domaine-style sake producer which is very rare in the Japanese sake industry, Onda grows the local specialty sake rice “Ippon-Jime” on its own land near the Shinano River and the Echigo Mountains. The rice is milled down to 88% of its original size before fermentation. Norio Onda, the fifth generation owner-president-brewmaster, grows the rice in spring and summer, harvests it in fall, and brews the sake in winter.
