This bottle is a Sake Gumi selection!

This sake has been around for 270 years! President Hiroyuki Zenbei comments, “In Japan, honjozo is a type of alcoholic beverage that is popular among customers who enjoy drinking it every night at home as an evening drink. The reason for this is that it is relatively reasonably priced and the quality of the sake is easy to pair with home-cooked meals.” Yoko and I first had this sake warm at Hana Sushi in Rohnert Park, and I’ve wanted to feature it in our club ever since. I love the notes of fresh steamed rice and sake kasu, with some banana at the end. “By aging it at a warm temperature for more than half a year, it has a calm aged aroma and smooth taste,” says Zenbei. Enjoy room temperature with spatchcocked roasted chicken with a yuzu kosho dressing.
