Soft, simple, satisfying

This one’s a fun, unfined, unpasteurized and undiluted sake from the Hana Colombe series that can be enjoyed on the rocks, or cut with hot water like shochu. Hattannishiki sake rice grown in Hiroshima is used, creating sake with a very forgiving, soft texture. The fresh and simple flavor profile will please both sake newbies and connoisseurs, and pairs best with lighter main dishes such as fish and chicken.

Enoki Brewing Company

Enoki Brewing Company was founded in 1899 in Hiroshima prefecture, which faces the Seto Inland Sea. Currently in their fourth generation of ownership, they have a surprisingly small production volume for a brand that’s recognized for winning accolades both nationally and internationally. They are the first brewery to have produced “kijoshu,” an ageable, high-end sake made by replacing some of the brewing water with sake. They also produce really fun, seasonal sake as well. The “hana” character they use means flower or brilliance, and “hato” means dove; thus the dove logo that appears on some of their labels.
