A work of art by Hakushika. With delicious mix of watermelon, banana, and sweet rice on the nose, this brew is a juicy delight. It’s hard to believe something this tasty could come from just rice and water, but that’s the magic of sake. Ripe strawberry and banana flavors flow into a hushed finish, like the quiet after a long night of celebration. So take a load off when you sip Sennenju.
Hakushika is brewed in Hyogo Prefecture in the Kinki region.
Tatsuuma Honke Brewing Company
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.
