SAKE2020 #11 Sake Salon with Mizubasho
The picture on the top is not a Champain. It’s a sparkling sake!
“Mizubasho Pure” is one of the flagships of Nagai-shuzo. Sparkling type of sake has become popular these days among the younger generation, but it is the first Champaign style pasteurized sparkling sake with good amount of delicate gas and without any sediment left in the bottle.
It was a long way of trial-and-error to find the best balance of gas so that the bottle doesn’t break during the process of pasteurization. The method is patented by Nagai-shuzo.
Nagai-shuzo is located in the center of Kawaba in Gunma. Kawaba is a small village in a rural area. It’s not a convenient place, but is blessed with beautiful nature and different scenery of the four seasons. It is surrounded by fruits trees, rice fields, forests, and clear water of the creek.
Noriyoshi Nagai, the president of Nagai-shuzo, says that he loves Kawaba better than any place in the world. It will be a great chance to listen to Nagai-san’s story of his brewery and the charm of Kawaba.
Seats are limited, so please apply in a hurry.
World famous sake journalist John Gauntner, tobether with other attractive stuffs of SAKE2020 Project including Christopher Hughes, Rebekah Wilson-Lye, and Sebastien Lemoine will be with you to make the time reluxed and fruitful.
