Reborn a success

Onikoroshi Wakatake is an old brand of sake that Omuraya Brewing Company brought back about 40 years ago. We wonder why it ever went out of style because it has had quite the success since its re-establishment. From its velvety smooth consistency to its sudden acidity, Onikoroshi Wakatake comes off well-balanced and satisfying. The mixed melon and banana flavors brighten as you drink. A good brew to pair with foods that boast strong flavors.
