**WINNER OF PLATINUM AWARD for Junmai Ginjo at THE LUXEMBOURG SAKE CHALLENGE 2022**
Obama is a small-scale brewery crafting a limited amount of sake using traditional and handwork production methods. They are very proud to use only local rice and water in crafting their products and they are the only fully local brewery in the region of Obama in the Fukui Prefecture.
Type: Junmai Ginjo
Using exclusively Go-Hyaku-Man-Goku rice, ideal for sake production, this noble Junmai Ginjo is concocted using FK801-C yeast, native to the region. This yeast is known for its apple essences and requires a slow fermentation process. The personality of this yeast, coupled with an elegant polishing ratio of 55% creates a sake with apple blossom aromas on the nose with ripe fruit flavors on the palate.
This pairs extremely well with whitefish meunières, fresh grilled seafood and even St-Jacques gratinées!
