Know More:

Char is a brand whose labels are named after comets and is produced by Endo Sake Brewery. Located in Suzaka, Nagano Prefecture, the brewery was founded in 1864 for the local Suzaka clan and began to supply sake to the clan's head. Since then, from the second to the fifth generation, we have inherited the intention of the first brewer, Endo Tokusaburo, to make delicious sake and continue to make sake to brew and nurture.

The difference between Jikagumi and the more well known 'Shiboritate' is that Shiboritate is immediately shipped after bottling while Jikagumi may be held before shipping.

 

As Jikagumi,(直汲み)also known as Funazake(ふな酒, this sake is “bottled directly”. In the very last step of the brewing process, sake bags filled with Moromi is pressed and extract sake liquid out. The Sake is gathered in Sake barrel for just a moment before being freshly squeezed and bottled directly. It has an elegant rice aroma and a well-balanced taste with moderate acidity and umami. The comfortable aftertaste that disappears quickly is attractive.
