Small batch maturation brings out the best

This special brew uses 25% Yamadanishiki rice from Hyogo and 75% local Dewasansan rice. “Bingakoi” refers to the maturation of “genshu” (undiluted sake). This sake is stored in glass bottles called “isshobin” and matured at below freezing temperatures to bring out the softness in texture and depth in flavor. The oversized writing on the label expresses the isshobin, the traditional magnum size bottle it’s matured in.

Watarai Honten

Watarai Honten, established between 1615 and 1624, continues to make sake in Tsuruoka City 400 years later. Embracing the relatively recent Geographical Indication awarded to Yamagata prefecture in 2016, they focus primarily on utilizing local and very high-quality rice grown in Yamagata, water and yeast. To do so, they work closely with contract farmers to cultivate many of the more uncommon varieties of rice. Even with the brewery’s long history, they’ve been quick to adapt to modern brewing styles and to continue to push and challenge themselves. The current 18th generation president has been the brewmaster since 2003, making wonderful sake appreciated all over Japan and around the world.
