We get natty red wine vibes from this sake with pronounced tannins, and notes of oak and cedar. Enjoy this sake in a brandy glass to engulf yourself in aromas of muscat grape, cooked apple, and fresh cream, while appreciating its light golden hue.
A long finish with flavors of cherry pit make this sake very unique and complex. We recommend sipping on the is sake at room temperature or warm at the end of the night while buried in a book.
Terada Honke was established over 340 years ago and are currently lead by 24th generation Toji Masaru Terada. They focus on extremely old-school brewing conventions; they brew using traditional yamahai and kimoto methods, sing while agitating the mash, rely solely on naturally occuring microorganisms which live at the brewery, and use as little machinery as possible, all while using pesticide-free rice. They even have a cafe on site at their brewery where they use their sake kasu and other byproducts to craft dishes and teach their guests about the magic of fermentation. True to Terada Honke form, this sake is a nama muroka genshu (unpastuerized, unfiltered, undiluted).
