ABOUT

The sake is made with a recently developed rice called Kannomai - a word made of the Japanese characters "kan", which means God, and "mai", which can mean dance or stage. The rice is only used in the Shimane Prefecture. Rihaku was named for the famous Chinese poet, Li Po, who lived from 701-762 and was known to drink a lot of sake before writing. According to lore he said, "I drink a bottle and write 100 poems."
