Katoukichibe Shouten Born Gold

Katoukichibe Shouten Born Gold


Our Take

The original romance. While I was at my first sake festival, I knew I was coming across a special brewery after shaking hands with the slick, pomade hair-styled owner. 

Katoukichibe Shouten puts out an outstanding daiginjo with the interesting name “Born Gold”. True to the name, the sake is a translucent golden hue. Look for notes of melon on the nose, a rounded body and notes of citrus on the palate. 

Born Gold is a tasty and elegant sake. It’s good for beginners and seasoned tasters alike, with a bottle that’s impressive to look at too.
