Shinriki or divine power rice was thought to be extinct since the 1910-20s. In 2006, Sempuku was able to resurrect 5g worth of Shiriki rice using less than a handful of seeds it had found in one of its facilities. Applying the sake production methods of the 1910s, Shinriki 85 is produced via the kimoto method and is neither charcoal filtered or water-blended. The rice itself is several times smaller in circumference than modern sake brewing rice and therefore milling away only 15% of the outer circumference yields such a bountiful aromatic and flavor profile.
Sempuku Shinriki Junmai 85 is kimoto muroka genshu brewed using rare Shinriki sake brewing rice milled to 85%.

Sumptuous aromas of warm rice, white currant, dragon fruit, green tea, and wildflower honey. Rich and umami on the palate, biscuit dough, white pepper, and mealy pear flavors coalesce before a ripe, long finish dotted with fruit.
