About Bakuren

Limited “super dry" ginjo sake that represents Japan

Bakuren is a ginjo sake that originated in Yamagata prefecture. It is a “dry" sake that is especially famous in the sake industry and is loved by many sake lovers. It is a super rare limited sake that can only be handled at 10 of the dealers nationwide!

Bakuren is one of the brands of Kamenoi Sake Brewery’s “Kudokijouzu", and is a “super dry" sake that was born as a result of repeated research to master the sake brewing of “sharp and dry Junmai Ginjo Sake". Not only it is spicy, but it also has a very refreshing taste with a faintly fragrant fruity ginjo, a light sharpness, and a very refreshing feeling that you will not get tired of drinking.

By the way, the meaning of Bakuren is “a woman who does what she likes without listening to her parents." It’s a very distinctive name (laughs)

The label of Bakuren depicts a woman holding a wine glass in one hand and a crab in one hand, and this woman seems to mean “Bakuren".

Sake degree +20

The characteristic of “Bakuren" is that it is “super dry". The spiciness is “Sake degree +20"!

The degree of sake is a unit that indicates the sugar content of sake. The higher the sugar content, the more negative it is, and the lower the sugar content, the more positive it is.

In general, if it is negative, it is sweet, and if it is positive, it is dry.

It is said that the degree of sake that is said to be “dry" in the world is about +3.5 ~ +5.9, and sake of +6.0 or more is said to be “very dry".

From this, you can see how amazing the number “+20 in Bakuten’s degree of sake“. It is not an exaggeration to say that it is dry beyond its taste.
