ABOUT THIS BOTTLE
SENKIN CLASSIC OMACHI
A fresh and fruity aroma of lychee and acacia that rejuvenates the senses. Burrow deeper into your senses to get that minerality as well. With flavors of peach, sage, melon rind, and freshly husked rice, this is a dynamic sake that holds its own against rich foods with salt, fat, brine, cream, or umami.
Rice Polishing Ratio
This sake is made from Omachi Rice that has been polished to 50%.
HOW TO ENJOY
Pairs well with rich foods such as Miso Dengaku, Scallop and Clam Chowder, Roast Chicken with Cream Sauce, Beef and Pepper Stir-fry, Carbonara Pasta and Mac & Cheese!
Chilled at about 50°–59°F, in a Bordeaux wine glass to really get all its aromas; or warmed at about 113°–122°F, in an ochoko.
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.
