Kamotsuru is an institution in Hiroshima Prefecture and is located on Sake Brewery Street in Higashi-Hiroshima City. Their brewery is surrounded by white and namako (grid pattered) walls with red brick chimneys. Toji Ryuta Ide of brewery No. 4 (Kamotsuru has four brewery sites in total) says about this namachozo, “Namazake must be treated with special care. You have to be especially hygenic during production and be mindful of the timing of the bottling. This sake balances freshness and acidity.” Notice aromas of fresh mushroom and coconut and enjoy chilled for a juicy finish that ends satisfyingly dry. The acidity in this sake shines with rich dishes like pork dumplings or cheese piroshki.
