Will have you floating in the clouds

Another of Senkin’s “Classic” edition, pasteurized just once so it retains a high level of freshness. The soft texture and light sweetness on the nose has you floating in fluffy clouds over fields of white flowers. The flavor brings more divine yet subtle sweetness that is not overpowering. As it ages after opening, you might find a touch of toffee taste develops, making it all the better.

Senkin Brewing Company

Senkin, a wildly popular brand in Japan, is known for a new flavor profile they brought to the sake industry with the balance of sweetness and tartness, called “amazuppai.” Kazuki Usui, the 11th-generation president, goes after a flavor profile inspired by German rieslings and wines from Alsace, while master brewer and younger brother Masato Usui strives to express it with the use of modern analysis and traditional brewing techniques. The expression of their domaine comes from the rock-filtered Kinugawa River water used for brewing and for growing rice in their immediate vicinity in Sakura city.
