GI Yamagata is a geographical indication system that protects sake produced in Yamagata, which was certified by the National Tax Agency on December 16, 2016. In the world of wine, this is a system that protects regional brands like Bordeaux and Champagne, and Yamagata is the only prefecture designated as a geographical indication for sake.
Yamagata Prefecture belongs to the Sea of ​​Japan climate, and there is a lot of snow in the winter. The quality of the water is low in iron, making it suitable for sake brewing.By brewing with this water, Yamagata sake generally has a soft and transparent quality. In addition, the extremely cold winters of Yamagata Prefecture are suitable for inhibiting the growth of various bacteria during sake brewing and for low-temperature, long-term fermentation.
This GI Yamagata mark can only be displayed on sake that has been recognized as meeting certain standards by an examination committee that also includes external experts, and guarantees the quality of that sake.
