We take sake lees from only the finest Daiginjo and Ginjo sakes produced in Nara prefecture, and ferment them to create a pickling bed. In making the pickling bed, we have developed a unique technique whereby we determine the course of the alcohol turning into sugar, then add grainy miso paste to adjust the flavor. By pickling the domestic ingredients, they gain a mellow fragrance and rich, nutritious flavor, so please enjoy them to your heart's content.
