Sogen “Hatsushibori” Ishikawamon
Celebration of the first press of the season
Sogen is proud to be one of the few breweries who continue to feature the locally developed sake rice called Ishikawamon. “Hatsushibori” means the first press of the season. The label features an ancient Japanese artform of knot-tying, along with a tortoise shell design, which symbolizes longevity. Enjoy a slightly concentrated flavor of nutty creaminess, and Sogen’s signature underlying umami structure.
