As fresh as the day it was bottled

Gensai has a scent like white flowers blossoming on a linden tree. The Yamadanishiki rice is polished down to a minute 35%, leading to the rich taste. The richness offsets the higher alcohol content. With both umami and sourness, Gensai is sure to awaken your taste buds. A good drink for big occasions.

Suehiro Brewing Company

Founded at the end of Edo era in 1850, the traditional wood storefront designated as historical heritage of the prefecture has been protected by “onigawara” (the roof ornament shaped as a demon). They hang a large round decoration made of fresh cedar leaves to notify the time for freshly brewed sake every year. The color of the ornament changes to brown as time goes by that indicates the aging of the sake they brewed. Mt Seaburi emerged from an eruption 1.8 million years ago. The water that flows through natural limestone is very delicate like silk. The brewery still has 5 active wells where this water flows. They have 100 contract local farmers that brewers closely work with, celebrate harvest with to brew the best quality sake.
