Established in 1922, Mii no Kotobuki are slow-pace brewers, with a high attention to detail, producing tiny amounts of sensational sake. The Toji [Master Brewer] at Mii no Kotobuki is Tadatsugu Inoue who has been making the Sake here since 1996. For the ‘Biden Kojo’ Inoue-san utilises a local rice ‘Kokuryo Miyako’ which they grow themselves. The Sake is also aged for two years before release.
The ‘Biden Kojo’ shows a elegant savoury nose. On the palate there is a straw and melon character with a balanced texture with a hint of grip. This is all supported by a backbone of fine acidity.
