Rice Wine- The alcohol of Asia!

There are many different types of rice wine all over Asia due to it being made from rice, which is the staple food here. For Japan, this is commonly known as sake or Nihonshu. There are many different types, Junmai Ginjo-shu, and Junmai Daiginjo-shu being at the highest end of the scale, with each sake using less of the rice grain. These higher end sakes are normally reserved for big events or important people, due to the amount of rice and time that goes in to creating them. Sake has been used in many different events such as the Iseshima G7 Summit, where two special Junmai Daiginjo-shu, one of which is called Hanzo(半造)were used to open the summit.

The rebirth of a Traditional drink!

Even with these high profile events, the Sake industry is slowly in decline. When it comes to making a toast, the majority of people are now choosing beers or wines and the female consumption rate is also gradually decreasing as well.
With this the industry came up with a way to grow and evolve and appeal to the bases that we were losing! This is sparkling sake!
There are two types of sparkling sake, one type is forced carbonation. This is not good for the flavour of the sake and is just a cheap way of doing this. The other way, the way which we do, is by adding an extra fermentation process, which creates natural carbonation, giving it its fizz.
There are two great appeal points of sparkling sake, one it looks great when served in a champagne flute, or wine glass. This makes it perfect for making a toast or opening a ceremony. It also is a stylish way to drink sake for females that worry about giving of the wrong image when sitting in an izakaya and ordering normal sake.

Bringing Sake to the world stage and Revitalising the Industry!

We have two main aims we wish to accomplish with this project.
The first is to help revitalise the sake industry!! By having many different creators create refreshing sake brews and spread this across not just Japan but around the world, they will be able to flourish and grow!
The second is to bring the appeal of sake to the wider world, to allow it to be on the main stage and to become the drink of many young adults.

Creating Ginten吟天 a subscription service that looks to bring sake to you!

We want to create a platform that will allow us to help spread high quality sake to the world! We want to introduce the amazing brands of sake to as many people as possible. We felt the best way to do this is by creating a subscription service where every month we will hand pick certain sake (sparkling and normal varieties) and send them out to the world! We wish to be able to do this not only for Japanese residents but also internationally. These brands will be high quality as well as affordable!

Bringing a sparkle to your world! The returns for backing!

Super Special Limited return! Chinese New Year Celebration set


In order to allow people that want to bring in the Chinese New Year with some sparkling sake, we're adding a new return focused on this! If you back the project by Monday 7th January 2019, we'll send out the bottle of sake in order for you to receive it by Chinese New Year!


We want to make sure that the returns for this project are appealing! As this money will be used to help create the infrastructure for making this subscription service available overseas , the returns will be mainly special sparkling sake! All these Sparkling Sake have a recommendation from the Japan Awasake Association, which certifies each bottle of true sparkling sake! 

From the line up we have, we have chosen two special sakes!

These sparkling sakes are Shichiken Sparkling Sake and Chiyomusubi's Sorah Sparkling Sake! Both of these sparkling sakes are perfect to take to a party or used as a toasting sake! It's also great for those that might not be a fan of normal sake!
[Shichiken Sparkling Sake 720 ml]
A perfect sparkling sake for beginners and aficionados, as well young men and women alike! The taste, the smell, and the subtle bubbles from the carbonation allows it to suit both Japanese and Western Food, Best served chilled.

The Japan Awasake Association- The leaders behindtrue sparkling sake

The Japan Awasake Association is a newly formed association that looks at certifying special sparkling sake! They only certify a sake as being a special sparkling sake if it follows certain processes! The main one being that the fizz being created is not artificially added but created naturally during the fermentation process (either within the bottle or in the tank). 

Processes for creating certified sparkling sake

    1.
    Created from only rice, rice mold and water.
    2.
    100% domestically grown rice is used and graded above 3 by the Agricultural Produce Inspection Law as raw material.
    3.
    The preservation of only carbon dioxide which stems from the natural fermentation during brewing.
    4.
    Outward appearance is clearly transparent and bubbles form after it is uncorked and poured.
    5.
    Alcohol content is 10% or more.
    6.
    Gas pressure is 3.5 bars (0.35 megapascals) or more at 20°C.

A word from the creator- Takashi Odagiri

I feel that it’s important to preserve the precious sake culture that we have in Japan but I also think that it must change in a way to make it viable in the current global climate. By creating this new type of sake, we hope to breathe new life in to the industry as well as give people abroad the chance to try a different side to Japanese sake!
