Good quality rice, a very pure spring water, and an ideal climate for the production of sake did the rest.
Takeuchi Shuzo is a very small unit, managed by the 7th generation of owners. For 140 years, inside of a beautifull and ideal environment, they develop excellent Daiginjo; we have here two representatives:
1. Myojin 50: this sake is pasteurized only once. The nose is very expressive, Myojin 50 is very silky whilst being precise and clear.
2. Myojin 40: it is also pasteurized only once. Incredibly stylish sake ! In the mouth, we find the richness and precision that characterize all sakes from Takeuchi shuzo. This is a rare sake with a great value for money.
