Miwa Shuzo achieved a Pure Rice Sparkling Nigori-zake with carbonation derived from secondary fermentation in-bottle,creating a crisp, clean taste after the sweetness of the rice and the richness of Nigori-zake. The process of “secondary fermentation in a bottle” is equivalent to the Champagne Method for wine. The naturally-produced fine bubbles create a fresh and pleasant texture.



Since it was founded in 1837, Miwa Shuzo, which used to be an Ogaki Domain warrant sake brewery, has been brewing the favourite local sake of Ogaki, which is famous for its plentiful spring water. Over 40 years ago, the mayor of Shirakawa village requested that it produce unrefined sake like Doburoku, which was served at the Doburoku Festival in the Historic Villages of Shirakawa-go. The resulting product, Shirakawa-go pure rice Nigori-zake (unrefined sake), has become one of Miwa Shuzo’s popular brands, with strong support from domestic and international sake fans.
