This “genshu,” or undiluted junmai sake, has a higher alcohol content with concentrated robust flavor. It has an almost creamy texture that delivers layers of flavors like pear, lychee and banana. Beneath it all lies a nuttiness that only adds to the complexity. Neither too dry nor too sweet, Wakatake “Onikoroshi” Junmai Genshu has become a staple at many dinner tables and very well could become one at yours.
Wakatake is made in
Omuraya Brewing Company
Wakatake, Wakatake “Onikoroshi,” “Onna Nakase” and “Oniotome” are all brands of Omuraya Brewing Company founded in 1832. This historic brewery is located on the Tokaido Road where merchants and travelers often stayed due to Oi River floods. Using the Minami Alps soft water, they’ve paid particular attention to using quality ingredients, employing their own rice milling machine from three generations ago. Switching to producing all premium sake in 2002 and now in the seventh generation ownership, they continue to please locals and visitors alike with their long loved series.
