2月2日 銀座で岩手の清酒まつり
いわて銀河プラザで行われるイベントのご案内です。

2月2日〜3日、岩手の清酒の試飲販売を行います。
弊社からは2日に高橋がスタッフとして参加します。

岩手県オリジナル麹「黎明平泉」を使ったお酒も、一部の蔵では販売されるそうです。

「黎明平泉」は、岩手県オリジナルの種麹です。同じく岩手県オリジナル酒造好適米「吟ぎんが」を使って作った純米酒に照準を定めています。
通常販売されている種麹は、麹の作りやすさなども考えて複数の菌がブレンドされているそうです。一方「黎明平泉」は麹菌2種類のブレンドですので、ストレートな味わいのお酒ができあがります。
岩手県工業技術センターで試作した黎明平泉を使った純米酒をきき酒する機会がありましたが、クリアで岩手らしいやさしい味わいのお酒でした。
「黎明平泉」を使ったお酒が県内各社から出揃うのが今から楽しみです。

鷲の尾の「黎明平泉」を使ったお酒は今年の3月に搾る予定です。発売は4月以降を予定しています。

Yakehashiri lava flows
Our brewery is at the foot of Mt. Iwate.
Mt. Iwate is active volcano whose last eruption took place in 1732.
In Mt. Iwate, There is vacant space prduced by lava flows called Yakehashiri lava flows. The area is 150 ha. the landscape is phenomenal. Black cold lava flows cover as far as the eye can see.
Our mother water came from here. The water that fall in the Mt. Iwate pass through the ground and cold lava flows. And it take many decades to come below our brewery. So our mother water is moderately hard, contain rich minerals. This wateris good water, and the core of our sake.
We think that local products in hachimantai for instance rice, buckwheat, vegetables, animal products and Sake are all good because they are made from this water.
