KIBO (key-bo) means “hope” in Japanese. The earthquake and tsuami of March 2011 completely destroyed the Suisen Shuzo Saké Brewery, the producers of KIBO Saké, and tragically took the lives of seven of their employees. With much passion and preserverance the saké brewery was rebuilt and the company resumed saké production the following year. The spirit of Suisen brewery lives on in its KIBO Junmai Saké. Hints of honey, roasted nuts and dried fruit are balanced into the perfect portable saké.
