There's an interesting story about Daikoku Masamune. It starts off sad, but it has a happy ending, considering. They once had their own brewery, near Kobe, with one of Japan's most celebrated water sources for sake brewing emerging nearby. Then the Kobe earthquake of 1990 hit, and sadly, they lost nearly all. The thing is, Daikoku Masamune, although a small family run brewery, led an amazing cult following in their area. This cult following extended even into the leadership ranks of big-brewery Hakutsuru. So when Hakutsuru's president learned of Daikoku Masamune's loss, he offered up space in Hakutsuru's Hyogo plant for them to continue their sake prodction. Daikoku Masamune took them up on it, but rather than use the (very very good) water that Hakutsuru uses, they instead opt to tank in their own water from the original source near their old brewery.
Daikoku Masamune's Junmai Ginjo is crisp, full bodied, with a hearty bitterness and pleasing rustic structure. There's depth and nuance, but ultimately a clean springwater-like finish.
This sake is brand new to the United States, and is imported by Oregon's own Sake One brewery in Forest Grove.
