ABOUT THIS BOTTLE
SENKIN ORGANIC NATURE
While made in an ultra old-fashioned way, the taste is surprisingly modern and sharp. Rich and fruity aromas of grapefruit, muscat, vanilla and banana. A hint of effervescence. Complex and gentle sweetness, with an apricot-like tartness at the end that may remind you that this is, afterall, a kimoto-method sake.
Rice Polishing Ratio
This sake has been polished to 90%.
HOW TO ENJOY
Goes great with well-seasoned meat dishes. Sauteed fois gras, butter-sauteed escargot, stews.
Enjoy chilled in a wine glass or ochoko cup.
SENKIN BREWERYLEARN MORE
One could say Kazuki Usui, head of Senkin Brewery, is the captain that steers the sake ship: not only the ship of his brewery, but the ship of sake trend in general. When Usui, at the age of 28, took over Senkin in 2008 as its 11th generation CEO, Senkin had run to the ground and had to be liquidated. Usui had no experience in sake prior to coming to his family business, but he was coming from the world of wine, working as a restaurant sommelier, then as an instructor at the Japan Sommelier School (now FBO Academy Tokyo) at the age of 22.
