Shimizu-No-Mai Pure Snow
Pure Snow is a Junmai from Shimizu-No-Mai Pure Series, but made in the Nigori style. It is an unfiltered sake –preserving the essence of the rice. Melon aroma with notes of cucumber and a hint of pear. Powerful flavor with distinctive texture accompanied by notes of ginger, Asian pear, and cantaloupe.
In 1997, Mr. Nobuo Abe, a bartender of “Hotel New Otani Tokyo” at that time, made the sake cocktail with an image of “Takashimizu”, and it was named “Shimizu-No-Mai”. During that time, Takashimizu was seeking the brand name for their new item. Since the impression of his cocktail matched well with the image of our new item, we asked him for letting us use the name of “Shimizu-no-mai” as our new brand name.
