How could you not like Wakaebisu “Honjozo” with Ebisu, a beloved god of good fortune, smiling right at you? An ally to the working class, this ebisu brings you an affordable staple that’s enjoyable at all temperatures and pairings. Refreshing mineral notes are delightful when chilled, and when warmed, you’ll get a soft expansion on your palate like light cream and a touch of white pepper.
Wakaebisu is made in
Founded in 1853, Wakaebisu Brewing Company’s start was the year of the Perry Expedition, a dramatic event that started the westernization of Japan. Blessed with lush mountains, clear sky, clear water polished by the mountains, and harsh winters, they’ve brewed sake carefully and diligently over the years. It’s currently run by the eighth-generation President Kuniko Shigefuji, whose grandfather was a leadership figure who won a notable gold prize with their Mie-grown Yamadanishiki. Now, with Brewmaster Seigo Takamatsu trained in Yamagata prefecture, they continue their legacy by winning accolades year after year with their four-person brewing team.
