Sohomare “Junmai Ginjo”

Sohomare Brewery

Sohomare Junmai Ginjo - An incredibly local sake, this is made with Gohyakumangoku rice harvested within five miles of the brewery. Gohyakumankoku result in a more stoic, stiffer sake, so the toji made an effort to round this out by bringing out the sweetness. This is a delicate, creamy expression of a junmai ginjo. Using three different yeasts yields a subtle fruity aroma.

Run by the Kono family since its founding, Sohomare Brewery was founded in 1872. Before taking over the business, the fifth generation and current president, Jun Kono, traveled to France in the 1980's to study the language and wine. His time there will later greatly influence the direction of the brewery. Shortly after becoming president in 1989, he decided the primary output of their sakes will be made kimoto style, there by radically differentiating his company from other breweries.
