ABOUT THIS BOTTLE

Sohomare “Karakuchi”

A bracingly delicious junmai that doesn't waffle around. The Yamada-Nishiki is polished down to 60%, and the numminess of the rice core really brings a breadth to the flavor. It has a fairly restrained, clean, fresh aroma, a texture that clings to the tongue, and a finish with a mineral bite. Warmed, the yummy savory touch of umami is highlighted. Happiness is a warm karakuchi.

about the brewery

sohomare brewery

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.
