"Challenge Blue" 180ml x 4bottles

Product Detail

This is a sake you’ll want to drink when you want to take on a challenge, or when you’ve worked hard and accomplished something.
We felt that acidity was important to create a taste that will make you feel assertive in a clear-cut way. It features a sweet and sour, citrusy flavor. More than just acidic, it also has a soft sweetness to it. We’ve given it a crisp, clean finish by using the sake-brewing rice Oita Mii.
We recommend either chilling "Challenge Blue" till it’s ice cold or drinking it hot. We’ve also kept the alcohol content low, as some people will be drinking directly from the can.

Manufacturer
Komatsu Brewery Co., Ltd. (Usa, Oita Prefecture)

Our brewery was founded in 1868 by Etsuzo Komatsu. The Nagasu area of Usa, where we are located, is an environment blessed with water that is ideal for sake brewing, rice harvested in the Usa Plain, and seasonal winds in the winter months. Because of this, Nagasu is a sake-making area, which, although rather small, once had as many as seven sake breweries. Although we stopped brewing in 1988, we have continued to operate as a brewery by outsourcing production. With the homecoming of 6th generation Junpei Komatsu in 2008, production started up once again. In 2018, we celebrated 150 years since our company’s inception and 10 years of our Hojun brand.
Oita Mii, the rice used in this CHALLENGE BLUE canned sake was developed in Oita during the first decades of the 20th century and came to be used all through the prefecture due to its outstanding taste. It stopped being cultivated in the 60s, however, as it was difficult to grow. Working with just a handful of seeds, our company has been trying to revive this precious rice. Made from 100% Oita Mii and using a koji-mold that is typically used for brewing shochu, Challenge Blue aims for a fresh, refreshing taste that is approachable even for young people who are not regular sake drinkers.


Sake Sommelier Comment

I think it’s really nice for this sake to be in close relationship with food, playing a role as a seasoning, and of course, to be able to drink it outdoors, straight from the can.
It would be wonderful for this to be the sake that makes you fall in love with sake, amazed about the existence of such a delicious-tasting world.
