The Kimoto from Sohomare offers one such experience. Rich, expressive flavor, genteel clarity and balance-these are the characteristics of sakes from Sohomare, established by the Kono family in 1872 in Tochigi Prefecdture. To achieve these qualities fifth-generation owner Jun Kono settled on the kimoto method, developed in the 17th century, as offering the most promise. This process, which takes 15 days longer than modern brewing methods, produces sakes with depth and integrity. Sohomare uses only "Designation A" Yamadanishiki rice for its junmai, ginjo and daiginjo labels. This champion strain is first choice among brewers for the fullness and clarity it imparts to sake. By joining the kimoto brewing method with top quality Yamadanishiki, the brewery achieved a new kind of sake, mellow, flavorful, elegant-and almost impossible to put down once it's in a glass. With a SMV of +4.0 this Kimoto is on the dry side, complimenting its elegance. Can be serve cold or warm, though room temperature is perhaps the best.
