Radiant, round, ravishing

This sake is genshu, or undiluted, which adds to the alcohol content. But there is more to love about this brew than just its strength. It has an almost creamy texture that delivers layers of flavors like pear, lychee and banana. Beneath it all lies a nutty vein that only adds to the complexity. Neither too dry nor too sweet, Wakatake “Onikoroshi” Junmai Genshu has become a staple at many dinner tables and very well could become one at yours.

Omuraya Brewing Company

Omuraya Brewing Company

Shizuoka Prefecture

The oldest existing brewery in Shizuoka prefecture started in 1832 as a guest house to accommodate travelers from Edo (Tokyo) with sake brewed with water from the beautiful local Ooi river.  Omuraya has survived the downturns while all other breweries in Shimada city went bankrupt during the 70s. The 5th generation brewer Jiro Matsunaga supported by the local business community "Wakatake" helped Omuraya come back and release the now-world-famous brand "Onikoroshi" using the recipe passed down from the ancient times.
