Raw, crude sake born from the land

This seasonal and limited quantity nama sake—aka raw sake—will be gone in a flash! It has notes of robust mushroom and deep ripe stone fruits with creamy texture. We think it matures nicely over time, thanks to the slightly higher alcohol for being an undiluted genshu. In Japan, they have a product called Denshin “Earth,” and “Fuyu” is the non heat-treated, raw version of it.

Ippongi Kubohonten

Ippongi comes from Zen language meaning “supreme truth, a state that achieves the greatest knowledge.” The history of the brewery goes back to 1902. It is located in Fukui prefecture beneath the Mount Haku, the best location for sake brewing with clean water and beautiful rice fields. Their famous “Denshin” brand is brewed differently with seasonality. It literally means “heart-to-heart” because the brewers believe the magic of this sake can help people connect and communicate from the heart.
