Description

By only lightly polishing the rice, this sake manages to show what Omachi can really be. Aromas of rice and grains on the nose, and a broad, almost creamy feel in the mouth. At first this seems a bit earthy, even rustic, but in the end it is irresistibly smooth!

Producer

Kikuchi
Omachi is one of the oldest rice varieties used for sake brewing. In 1859, the species was discovered in Okayama prefecture. More than 150 years later, it is the fourth most widely used type of rice and, through cross-breeding, is one of the parents of Yamada Nishiki, the most popular variety used in sake brewing. It's high time to pay more attention to this variety in our sake range, and what better way than to go back to the source, Okayama? The Kikuchi Brewery is located in Kurashiki, a historically important port city on the Japanese Inland Sea just at the mouth of the Takahashi River. The fertile valley is the birthplace of Omachi, and the proximity to a unique stream of water makes it the ideal place to brew sake. The brewery was founded in 1878 by the Kikuchi family and its specialty is, how could it be otherwise, Omachi sake.
