This sake is named after Rumiko Moriki, who is the Tōji (Master Brewer) and 4th generation Kuramoto (Brewery Owner) along with her husband Hideki. When Rumiko's father was unable to continue working at the Kura in the early 1980's, Rumiko and Hideki, who had recently married, stepped in and started working alongside the Tōji instead. A few years later Rumiko and Hideki became the Tōji themselves. It was at this time that they committed to making only Junmai [Pure Rice] sake, at the highest level they could achieve. Today the Hanabusa, Tae no Hana and Suppin Rumiko no Sake range of products are the quintessence of their dedication to top quality brewing. ‘Suppin’ translates into ‘to go bare-faced or without makeup’ and explains that this sake is made without unnecessary manipulation or work. A ‘Pure Rice’ sake made without charcoal filtration, pasteurisation or dilution. The manga graphic on the label of this sake is a very famous drawing of Rumiko when she first started brewing sake, as she was one of the very first female Tōji at the time. The Suppin Rumiko no Sake is made with Hattan Nishiki rice and has lovely earthy notes, a soft textural palate, balanced acidity and a dry and layered finish.
