KOIKAWA Tokubetsu Junmai. Koikawa brewery is located in Japan where Kame-no-o rice first originated.
Kame-no-o rice was famous for making good Sake, but due to the difficulty in farming it, the rice was almost wiped out.
30 years ago, Koikawa brewery discovered that there were a few hundred seeds left and asked the great-great-grandson of Kame-no-o inventor, Mr. Kameji Abe for the seeds in order to start farming this special rice again.
Today Kame-no-o has once again became a popular rice for Sake-making. Kame-no-o can only be grown using organic methods, as this species of rice plant will die if pesticides or other chemicals are used.
