Takahashi Shoten is one of the most famous sake brewers in Japan. The sake brewer is located in Yame City, the southern part of Fukuoka Prefecture. The sake brewer sells various kinds of sake under the brand name of "Shigemasu".
Today, I bought "Snow That You Dream of in Summer（夏に夢る雪）". The bottle has a color of blue and is very beautiful. The sake was Junmai Ginjo Nigori Zake. Junmai Ginjo Shu is brewed using highly polished rice. Nigori Zake is unpurified sake and therefore has lees. The lees give the sake a sweet taste.
As soon as I opened the stopple, apple-like rich aroma impressed me a lot!! It has a light and fruity flavour. You can enjoy "Snow That You Dream of in Summer" only in May!! You have to buy one as soon as possible! You can find one on the first basement floor in Hakata Hankyu.
