Inishie no Bishu - GOLD is produced in Chiba prefecture.
Iwase brewery
Chiba Prefecture
About 10 minutes from the brewery is the Onjuku Coast, named "Moon Desert".
Because of its proximity to the coast, the brewery's brewing water passes through the seashell layer of groundwater, and has a hardness of 13-15, which is among the hardest in Japan.
High calcium and magnesium content means high nutrient content and vigorous fermentation. By using water with high hardness and brewing using the "Yamahai yeast" method, we are able to produce sake that is rich in flavor and has a strong acidity.
In order to bring out the flavor of the rice, which is a characteristic of Iwanoi's sake quality, we insist on ""Yamahai brewing"" and brew more than two thirds of the total brewing volume with Yamahai.
With the exception of the Daiginjo, most of the rice used is grown in Chiba Prefecture.
