A good first step into the world of sake

A versatile sake that compliments dishes with bold flavor. The mild, honeydew taste won’t overpower other flavors and lets you discover each component of the sake sip by sip. Because of its mellow profile, Hakushika Kuromatsu Chokara is a solid brew to introduce your friends to the world of sake. Serve warm to draw out the aroma or chilled to sharpen the finish. Try a bottle with Japanese pub “izakaya” style cuisine.

Tatsuuma Honke Brewing Company

Hyogo prefecture

The name of the brewery Hakushika, literally meaning “White Deer” came from the ancient Chinese mythology that tells a story about longevity during the Tang Dynasty. Hakushika grows high-quality Yamadanishiki rice carefully by asking contract farmers in Hyogo. All Yamadanishiki used by Hakushika is grown locally in the same prefecture. In 1662 (Yoshifumi 2 years), at the time of 4th generation shogun of Tokugawa family, Yoshizaemon dug a well in Nishinomiya around the Shogun castle and found the quality water that he started brewing sake with. Even after losing most of the facility during the war, Hakushika continues to pass down the skills from Tamba Toji, professional brewing masters from over 300 years ago.
