Inspired by the sea

This gorgeous junmai’s name means “Pacific Ocean” because the brewery where it’s crafted is near the sea. Unlike the sea, which is abundant with marine life, this sake is abundant with fruit flavors and are balanced out by an attention-grabbing earthiness. The ebb and flow of the taste pulls you in and holds your wonder, much like staring out at the horizon over the vast Pacific Ocean.

Huchu Homare

Huchu Homare, established in 1845, is located in the old capitol of Ibaraki, which is known for its soft, iron-free water. Using this water and inspiration from the surrounding region, the brewers at Huchu Homare craft highly acclaimed sake born from Watari Bune rice. This rice is harder to grow but helped the brewery win two gold medals at sake competitions. The sake created at this brewery is an honorable representation of what the region has to offer.
