Gunma Prefecture's Geographical Indication “GI Tone-Numata” Sake Kicks Off Its Overseas Sales on January 17!
Sake’s geographical indication, “GI Tone-Numata,” which consists of four sake breweries in the Tone-Numata area of Gunma Prefecture in Japan, requires that the breweries make the most of the local water and climate, and that the type of rice used as the raw material be one of the following: Yukihotaka, Gohyakumangoku, or Koshihikari. In addition, only yeast from the local area (Gunma KAZE yeast, Gunma G2 yeast, and brewer's house yeast) can be used, and vintage can be indicated under certain conditions, so only those that meet the extremely strict criteria are certified.

According to Mr. Shinya Tasaki, Chairman of the Japan Sommelier Association, "GI Tone-Numata is equivalent to PDO in Europe or AOC in French wine and is expected to attract worldwide attention in the future." On January 17, "GI Tone-Numata" sake as a set of 7 bottles will be released for sale in overseas markets.
The seven kinds of “GI Tone-Numata” sake commonly have a transparent, pale gold color, and an aroma that contains the note of freshly made rice cakes, fruit, almond jelly, green grass, and fresh greenery. The flavors are characterized by a refreshing acidity, a bitterness that brings richness, a mellow umami and sweetness derived from rice, and a clear impression.
These seven types of certified sake, from sparkling sake for the “kanpai,” to full-flavored sake for the main course, then sweet dessert sake at the end of the meal, can be paired with French cuisine course meals. They go well with ingredients that are difficult to pair with wine, such as fresh tomatoes and eggs.
