- It is a summer-only product popular for its fireworks label. Even if you are not familiar with Yamagata Masamune, you may have seen this label at an izakaya. There were some twists and turns regarding the rice used, but in the end we settled on Yamada-Nishiki. I think Gohyakumangoku gave the impression of being a little too clean in flavor. Although it is a summer sake, we do not want to pursue only a refreshing taste, but to express a robust flavor. So please enjoy it in a cool room with delicious food. The tanks that are shipped in early summer and those that are shipped in mid-summer have different flavors and alcohol content. The early summer tanks have a more robust flavor, while the mid-summer tanks have a slightly lower alcohol content for a clean, dry taste. For your information, we have been designing all of the Yamagata Masamune labels in-house for the past 10 years, but when we launched this product in 2007, I think I was getting a little tired of the old Yamagata Masamune logo. Of course, I have the deepest affection for the classic logo, but I wanted to create something new and innovative. As a result, I still like the label I designed for this year (Summer Junmai, Akaban Omachi).
