Sake for heroes

As the name translates to “Ode” in reference to ancient Grecian hymns sung in celebration of heroes, this sake is truly epic. Using a free-drip shizuku method to capture the clarity and fragrance of the top-grade Yamadanishiki rice, Daishichi “Shoka” presents harmony between power and grace. Satiny texture graces your palate with rich, dry woody flavors, spice, fine cream and grapes. Named as the best sake to pair with French cuisine in 2013.

Daishichi Brewing Company

Daishichi Brewing Company is located in the castle town of Nihonmatsu, and was founded in 1752 by Saburoemon Ohta, originally from a samurai family. Daishichi means big seven, and comes from the hereditary name of consecutive family heads Shichiemon. Daishichi makes rich, mellow sake with an outstanding reputation in the orthodox kimoto brewing method, in which they specialize. The numerous accolades, won both nationally and internationally, can perhaps be attested to master brewer Takanobu Sato’s perfectionist ways. Their sake is exceptionally balanced and is food friendly to any portion of a meal, from any part of the world.
