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 acidity. This ‘Nigori’ [Cloudy Sake] is produced in a unique way. Each bottle is partly filled with the fermenting Sake, before the remaining part is pressed and then the bottle filled. The result is a full-bodied, dry style with great refreshing acidity.
