Kenbishi 'Kuromatsu' Yamahai Honjozo Sake 900ml
One of the oldest continuously active breweries in Japan, Kenbishi has been making bold and rich sake in Hyogo since 1505. Their iconic diamond logo can be seen in 16th-century illustrations of samurai drinking sake from a barrel for courage before battle.
This is the taste of old school sake: deep, rich, bursting with umami, sweetness and acidity. Pairs beautifully with oysters, sea urchin, tempura and even dry-aged steak. Made from locally Hyogo-grown Yamada Nishiki and Aiyama milled to 60% and a touch of distilled alcohol to add weight and enhance the dark aromas.
