Sake Gumi

I fell in love with this Daishichi Honjozo in its hometown of Fukushima at an onsen. Paired with a local delight, shisomaki, this smooth, creamy and rich kimoto style sake was heavenly warmed up slightly. Picture yourself in a yukata and be transported to Fukushima with this bottle! 

Back home in Oakland, I noticed the cherries in the nose and a general sweetness. So I tried it with a few saltier cheeses. A pungeant, salty Roquefort proved to be the winner! Enjoy this sake chilled with your favorite blue! Daishichi Sake Brewery, located in Fukushima, makes kimoto sakes exclusively.
