This bottle is a Sake Gumi selection!
Juemon Junmai Muroka Genshu is brewed by Toshimaya in Tokyo uses soft water drawn from Mt. Fuji snow melt. This sake was featured in Sake Gumi for Sake + Water month in August 2020.
Toshimaya Sake Shop opened in 1596. While selling sake, customers asked if they would serve food alongside their sake. So they started serving tofu dengaku, and just like that, the first izakaya was born. The brewer credits the clean finish on this sake to the soft water pulled from their well. With a rich mix of tastes including, honey, cucumber, and burdock root. We love having Juemon with hearty dishes like miso-stewed mackerel. Serving it on the rocks with a slice of lime makes this sake crisp and refreshing. The izakaya closed for a period of time, but lucky for us, reopened in Chiyoda-ku in July 2020!
