• Wakatake Onikoroshi “Super Demon Slayer” Junamai Daiginjo Sake

On the nose cantaloupe, roasted grains, fuji apple. On the palate the sake has subtle notes of lemon zest, blueberry, candied pear, sage and almond pastry. This sake is fuller bodied, smooth and dry with a touch of sweetness. 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 from 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
