Umami Mart Registry

After featuring the wildly popular Sawahime Yamahai Junmai in December 2019's Sake Gumi, we decided to bring on a new expression from Inoue Seikichi Shuzo, and this sturdy honjozo has captured our hearts!

An instant home run with our staff and bar customers, Sawahime Tokubetsu Honjozo is the perfect mix of crisp and dry, with a supple texture and subtle fruit-and-nut notes to keep you tantalized and engaged while refreshed and reaching for more. We get dry notes of pepper, white chocolate, juicy peach, and fatty almonds, all while finishing very crisp. We recommend this one with just about anything, but tempura soba immediately comes to mind!
