Genshu

Undiluted sake

After blending comes the “warimizu” stage of sake making. This is when water is added to the sake to lower the alcohol content and balance the taste. Some brewers elect to skip this step to preserve bolder, stronger flavors. This undiluted sake is called “genshu.”


The more concentrated flavors of genshu can hold their own when paired with strong-tasting foods, like American or Mexican cuisine. The junmai daiginjo we have from Senkin Brewing Company are all genshu, so sip your way through them to discover the possibilities of this sake style! Wakatake “Onikoroshi” Junmai Genshu would also be a great first stop on your genshu journey, with its versatility and concentrated flavor.

Genshu is a subcategory of sake, so any sake can be genshu if the brewery so desires. At Tippsy, genshu sake can range in price from $20 all the way into the hundreds of dollars for competition-grade bottles.
