Hakkaisan “Tokubetsu Junmai Genshu”

Niigata Prefecture


Its got oomph

Sometimes you’re in the mood for something a little stronger, with a little more oomph. Hakkaisan Genshu has that oomph. This undiluted sake delivers a umami-rich flavor backed with a surprising sweetness. Did we forget to mention it has a higher alcohol content than average sake? That’s part of the oomph, but there’s no harshness. The brewers made sure of that by fermenting the sake for a long time at nice, cool temperatures.

Hakkaisan Brewery Company

Hakkaisan Brewery Company

Niigata Prefecture

Hakkaisan Brewery Company was founded in 1922 in the foothills of Mt. Hakkai, in an area with snow accumulating over 10 feet at times. The snowmelt water is naturally filtered by the mountain, providing water for the rice fields and for the elegant sake they produce. Their signature Niigata style is known as tanrei karakuchi, which is crisp, clean and dry, achieved by slow, low-temperature fermentation. They only use handmade koji and produce in small batches, and their guiding principle is to produce sake of the highest quality that pairs well with food.
