Kanto-Shinetsu Sake Awards 2013

Six prefectures in the Kanto-Shinetsu region of Japan

Kanto-Shinetsu Sake Awards 2013 is the traditional sake award held by the Kanto-Shinetsu Regional Taxation Bureau of the National Tax Agency of Japan, which has jurisdiction for the Kanto-Shinetsu region’s six prefectures (Ibaraki, Tochigi, Gunma, Saitama, Niigata and Nagano). The award was first held in 1965 and the most recent award held in 2013 marked the 84th.

The objective of holding this award is, through evaluating the quality of sake, to promote the advancement and development of sake brewing technology, to improve the quality of sake brewed in Kanto-Shinetsu region’s six prefectures, and to contribute to the sound development of the sake industry.

The most recent award (Kanto-Shinetsu Sake Award 2013) consisted of two sections: The first section was for Ginjo-shu sake that has a fruity flavor and has been described as the highest work of art among sake. The second section was for Junmai-shu sake that is made solely from highly quality rice and has a fragrant and complex flavor. From the many traditional sake brewers(Meijo-kura) in the six prefectures of the Kanto-Shinetsu region, which is a region blessed with outstanding natural beauty, in the Ginjo-shu section 200 products were exhibited from 200 breweries, and in the Junmai-shu section, 192 were exhibited from 192 brewers.

The judging panel, who used all their senses to evaluate the quality of the exhibits, carried out the first round of judging on October 1st and 2nd, 2013, and the second (and final) round on October 10th, 2013. Following a strict but fair judging process, the Regional Commissioner Hidenori Sakota of the Kanto- Shinetsu Regional Taxation Bureau awarded the Grand Prize to a brewer who was awarded the highest score in the Ginjo-shu section, and also gave Award of Excellence to a further 63 brewers that achieved excellent scores. In the Junmai-shu section, the Commissioner Sakota also gave Awards of Excellence to 62 brewers that achieved excellent scores.

Judging method

The judges, who are experts in evaluating the quality of sake and came from the six prefectures in the Kanto-Shinetsu region, are researchers from a public organization for sake brewing technology, brewmasters and technical officers from the Kanto-Shinetsu Regional Taxation Bureau. The judges used all their senses to perform strict but fair evaluations of the quality of sake.
