    佐渡から帰る際、佐渡のお酒を買いたくて、両津港のそばにある酒造所に寄りました。 工場見学もできるようですが、時間がなくお店だけ寄りました。 お店の壁には歴代総理の「國酒」と書かれた色紙が飾られていました。 お店の中のお酒は試飲可能とのことですが種類が多いので厳選する必要があります。 お酒を利用したスイーツの試食もできました。 甘酒もあり、とてもおいしかったです。 ここでしか買えない限定酒もあり...

    Niigata Sado-shi Tokuwa 2377-2
    This sake brewery was founded in 1872. The brewery has passed down and refined masterful brewing skills since this time while also taking on the challenge of creating innovative, new alcoholic beverages incorporating novel methods such as music performance and ultrasonic vibration. The brewery primarily uses brewer’s rice grown together with specially contracted farms in the terraced paddies of Akadomari. These farms exclusively employ a distinctive farming method making use of superior water and avoiding reliance on pesticides and chemical fertilizers. The brewery’s shizukuzake, made by placing un-pressed moromiunrefined sake in special suspended bags and gathering until the drops which trickle down, has a delicate flavor and light aftertaste.
