Description

The ideal sake to understand the Yamahai method. Rich in aroma, a strong umami character, but also a nice acidity that gives the sake tension. A real foodie sake.

Producer

Hyakujuro
Hayashi Honten is a relatively young brewery, founded in 1920. Currently, brewing is managed by the fifth generation, Rieko Hayashi. Hayashi Honten is located in Gifu Prefecture, near the Japanese Alps. The proximity of the mountains immediately explains the success of the brewery: the water used here comes from the Nagara River, one of the three most beautiful and clearest streams in all of Japan. Hyakujuro refers to a famous Kabuki actor who, in the early Showa period, had hundreds of cherry trees planted in Kakamigahara, the town where Hayashi Honten is located. Every year, these trees attract a large audience who enjoy the first spring sun under the cherry blossom. It is the brewery's wish that their sake has the same effect: bringing people together and giving pleasure.
