Wakatake is an old brand of sake that Omuraya Brewing Company brought back in 1975. We wonder why it ever went out of style because it has had quite the success since its re-establishment. From its velvety smooth consistency to its sudden acidity, this sake comes off well-balanced and satisfying. The mixed melon and banana flavors brighten as you drink. A good brew to pair with foods that boast strong flavors.
Wakatake is brewed in Chubu region.
Omuraya Brewing Company
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.
