Overview

Takashimizu brewery is located in the heart of Akita prefecture, where three rivers gather, a place known as being the source of the purest water since the time of the Samurai.​ Pure Dusk is the Junmai Daigingo selection of the Pure Series. It is the highest quality designation for sake. It must be made from rice with at least 50% of the rice polished away and using only rice, water, koji, and yeast in the brewing process.

Fermentation

The rice grain is milled to 45% of its original size (most other Junmai Daiginjo sakes are milled to only 50% of their original size)
