Heiwa Shuzo Nigori
A sophisticated version of a true nigori, this unfiltered sake has tons of sweet aromas and flavors - think vanilla ice cream - with just a touch of sweetness on the palate. Made from Ippanmai rice at a 75% milling rate, this sake drinks smooth and clean like a more polished sake would. Perfect for nigori lovers who don't want an overly sweet, thick drink, there are so many layers of flavor here, with a surprisingly clean finish.
About the producer
Located in a valley in Kainan City, Wakayama, lies what was once originally built as a temple, but now stands as Heiwa Shuzo, renamed after the end of the Second World War (Heiwa translates to “peace” or “harmony”). While the brewery has been making sake for 4 generations, the KID brand itself is quite young, only having started production about 10+ years ago. The average age of a kurabito (sake brewery worker) at KID is 29 years, and it is collectively the KID goal to create the standard for next generation Sake in Japan.
