A bestseller for a reason

This is Horaisen’s best-selling product, so you know that you’ll be getting sake that satisfies. Its name is taken from an Edo period poem about drinking written by Kansazan, which is printed on the bottle for those of you who can read Japanese. As a junmai, this sake has low acidity and light aroma like steamed brown rice. Its clean, medium body delivers a dry, sweet rice flavor.

Sekiya Brewing Company

This brewery was founded in 1864 and has always been quick to adopt new brewing methods. In this sense, they don’t feel like their brewery has a traditional atmosphere. Funny that they say that because the seventh generation owner’s photos show carefully grown rice (they started growing their own in 2005), no-waste and transparent process and beautiful night skies with fireflies, which feels pretty “traditional” to us! Not only do they win accolades for their sake, but also are awarded by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fishes and Minister of Health and Welfare for their facility.
