The apple of your eye

They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away, so this apple-y honjozo must count too right? Well, you’ll certainly feel great after basking in this sake’s full bright flavor. On the nose is a restorative herbal aroma that’s not found in most sake. Shindo Brewing Company is known for doing things a little different, so it’s no surprise Ura-Gasanryu Koka has unique twists you have to experience for yourself.

Shindo Brewing Company

Shindo has been brewing a local but famous brand “Fukutsuru” for the last 10 generations. This new brand “Gasanryu” was invented from an idea of going back to the original. They rebuilt the entire process to make truly authentic sake for sake lovers by taking harvest of rice to brewing all in-house. “Gasanryu” is limited in availability, most of them are only consumed locally.
