Shinsei “Junmai Daiginjo”
For sweet tooths and dry lovers alike
“Shinsei” means noble and sacred, and it refers to the centuries-old tradition of offering sake to the gods. Yamamoto Honke, staying true to servicing the community with Kyoto style hospitality, do their best to keep costs down and quality up by using local Kyo no Kagayaki rice. This, together with their signature water source, makes an incredibly mellow texture and a flowery, distinguished yet approachable treat.

Shinsei is made in Kyoto prefecture in the Kinki region.
Yamamoto Honke, currently in the 11th generation, was established in the old capital city Kyoto in 1677. Burned to the ground during the battle of Fushimi Toba in the 19th century — which resulted in the defeat of the shogunate — the brewery was quickly rebuilt with the support of the locals. Two things remain constant since establishment: the use of their well water called Shiragikusui, one of the seven mystical waters within the Fushimi region that produces a very smooth, well-balanced, soft and gentle mouthfeel; and that every time the heir becomes the president, their first names become Genbee.Learn more
