Set of 4 Kijo Chronicles
1 year, 3 years, 7 years, 10 years
At Nanbu Sake Brewery, we use the famous water "Oshimizu", which was selected as one of the 100 best waters selected by the Environment Agency, as our brewing water. This preparation water is soft water suitable for sake brewing and is one of the essential elements for our sake brewing. For sake rice, we mainly use high-quality rice from Ono City, which is one of the leading producers of Gohyakumangoku in Japan.
