A good first step into the world of sake

A versatile sake that compliments dishes with bold flavor. The mild, honeydew taste won’t overpower other flavors and lets you discover each component of the sake sip by sip. Because of its mellow profile, Hakushika Kuromatsu Chokara is a solid brew to introduce your friends to the world of sake. Serve warm to draw out the aroma or chilled to sharpen the finish. Try a bottle with Japanese pub “izakaya” style cuisine.

Tatsuuma Honke Brewing Company

Established in 1662, Tatsuuma Honke Brewing Company has a long history filled with stories. The brewery began with a well they dug that provided them with exceptional quality water. Their brand Hakushika means “white deer”, and is a symbol of good luck and longevity. Their premium sake brand, Kuromatsu, was named in 1920. They’ve progressively sought sake to be enjoyed overseas, and even had a sake brewery in Colorado from 1992-2000. Currently in the 15th generation, they remain a strong leader in the future of sake by keeping the tradition in Nadagogo, a key place in the history of sake.
