CRSSD Festival x ENTER.Sake Menu
Our signature sake. Made in a mountain valley gap in the Japanese Alps between Nagoya and Nagano. Clean and pure as its idyllic water source; made with local rice.
Fujioka Shuzo is an incredibly small brewery with Fujioka-san personally overseeing each step of the labor and time intensive process to produce a truly handmade sake. In 2002, 5th generation Masaaki Fujioka re-opened the brewery establishing the new sake brand “SOOKUU” aiming to brew a Sake with its taste reflecting a gentle clear blue sky.
A fragrant and aromatic sake with a hint of perceived sweetness. A perfect aperitif drink or introduction to sake. Good weight on the palate with a smooth finish.
