Onikoroshi is translated to “demon slayer” to convey that this type of sake is spicy enough to kill demons. Thanks to the harsh, cold winters of Miyagi, Uchigasaki has been making low-temperature, long fermentation sakes that result in very dry brews, for over 300 years. This sake has a particularly high SMV of +10. Dry sakes are ideal for everyday drinking – the dryness can be enhanced when chilled, and mellowed when warmed. It is very versatile when food pairing, and complements Miyagi flavors from Miyagi oysters to Buttered Bamboo Shoots. We keep grabbing for this one during our weekday dinners!
