Established in 1870, Fujiichi Shuzō is located in Aichi prefecture. The current Tōji [Master brewer] is Katsuaki Yamamoto. Yamamoto-san created the ‘Kikutaka’ brand only in 2012 and has already established himself as a young Sake brewer to watch. His focus is on creating Sake with a lot of umami and a lot of acidity. The ‘Kanazawa Kōbo’ is made with an original yeast strain from Kanazawa. Incredibly vibrant Sake, with a savoury kombu/dashi-like character. Full-bodied, the palate lingers with a bright complex finish.
