SAKE2020 #10 Sake Salon with Nanbubijin
Cheerful and bright "saviour of sake" from Iwate
The brewery of "Nanbubijin," internationally know as "Southern beauty," is located in the north end town Ninohe in Iwate. Surrounded by mountains and covered with snow in winter, the brewery is blessed with plenty of good medium hard water which vitalize the fermentation of their sake.
Kosuke Kuji, the president, is a charactor. His energy to pursue his goal seems to be unlimited, but his is not a lonely wolf. He is always cheerfful, bright, and positive.
Nanbubijin, like most of the breweries in Tohoku area, was suffered by the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011. Everybody tended to look down and was rather in a negative mood. Then he put one short movie on the Youtube, which totally changed the situation. His strong word instilled into the heart of people, and make them look forward.
You can't miss his story.
Also, you can't miss tasting his sake which has gotten both IWC Championship Award held in England and Plutinum Award of Kuramaster held in France this year.
John Gauntner will be with you to share the story with him.
Seats are limited for about 20 people so please reply in a hurry.
Light meal will be served with sake.
