A Pure Rice sake made without charcoal filtration, pasteurisation or dilution. The manga graphic on the label of this sake is a very famous drawing of Rumiko when she first started brewing sake, as she was one of the very first female Tōji at the time, around 30 years ago.  Suppin Rumiko no Sake: Kimoto is made with Yamada Nishiki and Hattan Nishiki rice types. Brewed using the traditional Kimoto starter method, this Sake shows wonderful complexity and a balanced savoury palate.
