International Sake Summit 2002
"Top Ten" Daiginjo's Awards:
Kurakagami "Mirror of Sake" by Kiuchi Sakery in Japan,
Score: 91 {Second after Gekkakow}

Judges' Tasting Notes:
Fresh, lacy notes of honeydew melon and peach skin (classic daiginjo fruitiness), wet stone and anise seed; silky, almost oily, textured, buoyantly balanced feel of tropical fruit, finishing with an emphatic dryness.

Kurakagami is exclusively brewed for the famous Japanese sake competition. This brilliant Daiginzyou (rice polished down to 38%) has been awarded prestigious gold prizes. Please enjoy the rich and well rounded flavours of this golden sake.

Kikusakari Sakes
Materials - The most important factor of Sake brewing is the quality of the rice. We polish rice, scraping off the proteins and fats that are unnecessary components for brewing. The grade of the sake is set by the quality of the polished rice. The highest class sake is called DAIGINJO, which is brewed with 50% polished rice. 30% polished is average for common sake brewing, but most of the products in Kuichi Syuzou are brewed with rice polished down 40% with the same standard as DAIGINJO.

Sake contains 80% water, and thus plays an important role in brewing sake. Kiuichi uses natural, hard water from a spring with water suitable for fermentation.

Awards
There are a lot of Sake-competitions in Japan with the most prestigious one held by the National Tax Administration. The National Tax Administration only judges sakes that are exclusively brewed for the competition. KIKUSAKARI sakes have received many prizes since the first display in 1988.
