 720ml. This Sake pairs well with dishes such as pasta carbonara, or shrimp scampi. Butter braised white fish, Roasted Chicken with truffle macaroni and cheese. This can also be an excellent companion to crudo and sashimi. Think of this Sake as a full bodied white wine. Jennifer Estevez, D&M

Kura(Brewery/Producer) Inforamtion: Established in 1832, and located along the Ohi river, in the center of Japan, flowing to the Pacific Ocean Kura(Brewery/Producer) Inforamtion: Japan’s southern Alps; the town of Shimada once prospered as one of the lodging towns of the 53 post stations of the Tokaido. 

The original Wakatake Onikoroshi sake is historically famous for having comforted many weary travelers crossing the Ohi river. For years, since the brewery’s foundation, they have lived through the rise and fall of history with the people in the town, and have enjoyed their hospitality. Although there were several breweries in the town at that time, due to its good-quality water, Ohmuraya shuzojo brewery is the only one remaining now. They continue doing their best to convey one of the most important traditional industries of Japan to the next generation. Wakatake is run by Mr. Matsunaga, the 6th Generation President and the Brewmaster is Mr. Hibino. The team is small, 5 to 7 people. Importer notes

A more fruit forward style of sake, on the nose, subtle tones of grapefruit, white peach, and heather. On the palate, the sake is balanced and structured with a fatty mouth feel that increases as it warms to room temperature(the brewmaster recommends this). The alcohol and acid combine for a brusque finish, with flavors of lemon peel, orange oil and honey harmonizing expressively..
