Consider this... There is an unique sake rice varietal that is only grown in Hokkaido. Ginpu is a tasty and hearty brewing rice that grows very low to the ground, which is really unusual for a sake brewing rice, because of the strong windy conditions in Hokkaido. We sell a Junmai Ginjo from Hokkaido called Taisetsu, which is made from Ginpu.
