Located in the town of Ishioka, in Ibaraki Prefecture, the Huchu Homare Brewery has been making some of Japan’s finest sake since 1845. Taking pride in the quality of its ingredients, particularly their water, the brewery only produces 12,000 cases of sake every year to ensure that each bottle that comes out of their doors contain only the best sake. In addition to their top-shelf quality, the brewery is also famed for being one of the only producers of Watari Bune sake in Japan which requires a very special rice variety prized since the Meiji era that they grew themselves.

Each batch of their Watari Bune Junmai Daiginjo "Liquid Gold" Sake begins with Watari Bune rice which is polished to a seimaibuai of just 35 %. After which, the polished rice is washed and then soaked in Huchu’s cherished soft, iron-free spring water was called Huchu Rokui before being steamed. The cooked rice then undergoes fermentation with the help of their proprietary koji before being filtered, left to mature, and finally bottled.

Once poured, this sake yields a pleasing nose of fruity and floral notes which is then immediately followed by a deep, succulent, and complex palate of honeydew melon, peaches, and pineapple, before wrapping up with a sublime and equally fruity finish.

Best served with traditional Japanese seafood dishes such as grilled scallops, sashimi, or sea urchin, the Watari Bune Junmai Daiginjo "Liquid Gold" Sake is the perfect pick up for the true sake connoisseur. So don’t think twice about getting yourself a bottle today and indulging in the superb flavors that only this luxurious Japanese spirit can provide.
