Here at the shop we affectionately call this brew our "old man" sake due to its dusty, warm quality! This sake is the quintessence of Omachi sturdiness, and uses Bizen Omachi rice which comes from Okayama Prefecture (the birthplace of Omachi rice).
For Kikuchi Brewery, the choice to use Omachi was obvious. Says 6th generation president Kikuchi-san, "It's a local rice, so it feels like it's a matter of course." Aware of how Omachi sake has more body and richness than Yamada Nishiki sake, they try to bring out a symphony of flavors by playing Mozart during the fermentation process. Enjoy notes (get it?) of white pepper, and aromas of banana at room temperature, and sauteed mushrooms when warm. Have this sturdy sake warm with curry rice or lamb chops!
