Japan seeks GI tag for Nihonshu

Japan seeks GI tag for Nihonshu

  • Nihonshu/Japanese sake, an alcoholic beverage, has been submitted for a Geographical Indication (GI) tag by the Japanese Embassy in New Delhi.
  • This is the first product from Japan to submit an application for a tag at the Chennai Geographical Indication Registry.

Regarding Nihonshu

  • This fermenting rice-based beverage is regarded as a rare and priceless commodity.

  • Nihonshu is typically consumed on special occasions like holidays, weddings, and funerals, but it is also ingested every day.
  • As a result, it is fundamental to Japanese culture and lifestyle.
  • The second largest brewed liquor (such as beer) market in Japan is the sake market, which is almost exclusively nihonshu.

About GI Tag

  • It is a sign used on products that have a specific geographical origin and possess qualities or a reputation that are due to that origin.
  • In order to function as a GI, a sign must identify a product as originating in a given place.
  • In addition, the qualities, characteristics or reputation of the product should be essentially due to the place of origin.
  • Since the qualities depend on the geographical place of production, there is a clear link between the product and its original place of production.
