A confectionery you can drink

This sake was brewed with one goal in mind: to make it as easy to drink as water. This idea is reflected in the presentation of the blue bottle. With that in mind, you might be surprised to find that the aroma is quite expressive with an expansive floral scent. The sake comes across with refined sweetness, like a tray of Japanese tea ceremony treats, light and enticing.

Yamamoto Honke

Yamamoto Honke

Kyoto prefecture

Over 300 years ago, Yamamoto Honke established their brewery in this old capital city Kyoto and started to brew finest sake in the area. Burned to the ground during the modern Japan’s most important battle of “Fushimi Toba” which resulted in the defeat of the last Shogun’s armies, the brewery was quickly rebuilt by the support of locals in the same year. They use one of the best natural waters in Japan which according to the myth, magically appeared a long time ago when a wizard with white chrysanthemums helped the people suffering from a draught. The calligraphy for the “Shinsei” brand was given by a famous artist Tessai Tomioka as a wedding gift for the eighth generation Genbee Yamamoto.
