Horaisen “Ku”

Horaisen “Ku”

Aichi Prefecture


When experimentation pays off

This sake is the end result of five years of experimentation to find a delicious sake flavor that hadn’t been made before. When it was finally released, it won gold at the Annual Japan Sake Awards two years in a row. The aroma is reminiscent of baking spice and cardamon. These tones carry into the flavor, which is akin to sweet spice and cinnamon swirled together. Light, dry and clean.

Sekiya Brewing Company

Sekiya Brewing Company

Aichi Prefecture

This brewery was founded in 1864 and has always been quick to adopt new brewing methods. In this sense, they don’t feel like their brewery has a traditional atmosphere. Funny that they say that because the seventh generation owner’s photos show carefully grown rice (they started growing their own in 2005), no-waste and transparent process and beautiful night skies with fireflies, which feels pretty “traditional” to us! Not only do they win accolades for their sake, but also are awarded by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fishes and Minister of Health and Welfare for their facility.
