For sweet tooths and dry lovers alike

This sake is like a perfect spring day. It breezes over your palate with a slightly sweet, yet dry flavor that brightens your senses. Each sip is preceded by a wafting aroma of apple blossom and mild riceyness. A delicate hint of marshmallow appeases your sweet tooth, while not being overpowering. Pairs well with food that usually aren’t sake-friendly such as citrus and vinegar. Pure and true, the kind of sake you want to drink again and again.

Yamamoto Honke

Yamamoto Honke

Kyoto prefecture

Over 300 years ago, Yamamoto Honke established their brewery in this old capital city Kyoto and started to brew finest sake in the area. Burned to the ground during the modern Japan’s most important battle of “Fushimi Toba” which resulted in the defeat of the last Shogun’s armies, the brewery was quickly rebuilt by the support of locals in the same year. They use one of the best natural waters in Japan which according to the myth, magically appeared a long time ago when a wizard with white chrysanthemums helped the people suffering from a draught. The calligraphy for the “Shinsei” brand was given by a famous artist Tessai Tomioka as a wedding gift for the eighth generation Genbee Yamamoto.
