Hitori Musume Nigori is a type of unfiltered sake made by the famous Gekkeikan Sake Company in Kyoto, Japan. The name "Hitori Musume" means "lonely daughter" in Japanese, and it is said to reflect the melancholy and bittersweet taste of this sake. This nigori is made from a blend of premium sake rice and pure water from Fushimi, the famous sake-brewing district in Kyoto. It has a cloudy appearance due to the unfiltered rice particles remaining in the liquid, which gives it a creamy texture and rich flavor.
