This is a seasonal release that’s part of Wakatake’s “Oniotome” series. The name “Oniotome” means “demon maiden,” hence the artistic rendition of a maiden on the bottle by Namiko Sonobe. Despite the name, you’ll find this sake much more pleasant than any demon. It’s light and smooth with mild fruit flavors and a touch of acidity. Its alluring charm pairs wonderfully with creamy sauce-based dishes and cooked vegetables.
Wakatake is made in
Omuraya Brewing Company
Wakatake, Wakatake “Onikoroshi,” “Onna Nakase” and “Oniotome” are all brands of Omuraya Brewing Company founded in 1832. This historic brewery is located on the Tokaido Road where merchants and travelers often stayed due to Oi River floods. Using the Minami Alps soft water, they’ve paid particular attention to using quality ingredients, employing their own rice milling machine from three generations ago. Switching to producing all premium sake in 2002 and now in the seventh generation ownership, they continue to please locals and visitors alike with their long loved series.
