This brewery created their brand, Izumo Fuji, to celebrate two Japanese symbols, one local, the other national- the Izumo Taisha, one of Japan’s oldest Shinto shrines, and Mount Fuji. This junmai ginjo is made from Yamada Nishiki rice, the famous sake rice varietal which is associated with Hyogo prefecture. Izumo Fuji, however, used Yamada Nishiki grown in their prefecture, Shimane.
