Thick, rich, wonderful

Unfiltered sake that pours white, like new fallen snow. The nose is fresh, with a sweet coconut and rice pudding aroma. Supported by a hearty thickness and rich rice flavor that nigori is known for, Snow Beauty also has an almost wine-like undertone. Like it’s name suggests, serve this one cold. One sip and you’ll feel like you’re stepping out into a white wonderland.

Tatsuuma Honke Brewing Company

Hyogo Prefecture

The name of the brewery Hakushika, literally meaning "White Deer" came from the ancient Chinese mythology that tells a story about longevity during the Tang Dynasty. Hakushika grows high-quality Yamadanishiki rice carefully by asking contract farmers in Hyogo. All Yamadanishiki used by Hakushika is grown locally in the same prefecture.  In 1662 (Yoshifumi 2 years), at the time of 4th generation shogun of Tokugawa family, Yoshizaemon dug a well in Nishinomiya around the Shogun castle and found the quality water that he started brewing sake with. Even after losing most of the facility during the war, Hakushika continues to pass down the skills from Tamba Toji, professional brewing masters from over 300 years ago.
