Similar to Mr. Takahashi, Mr. Usui of Senkin Brewery lives by the motto, “Yokei na koto shinai” (do nothing unnecesarry). His sakes are muroka genshus that are pasteurized only once. Senkin created a line of sakes called Modern with higher acidity and residual sugar levels for bright and refreshing sakes. Applying the same concept as a Domaine or Estate, Senkin uses the same water for brewing that is used for growing the rice that was harvested just five minutes from the brewery. Try chilled with or at room temperature with grilled chicken dabbed with yuzu kosho, or smoked salmon with slices of lemon.
