  • Yukawa 16th Kurouemon Yamahai Junmai Omachi

    Brand: Yukawa shuzo
    Capacity: 72cl
    Country: Japan
    Region: Nagano

    High and deep in the lush green mountains of the old Post town of Yabuhara Juku, Nagano prefecture, at 1000 meters above sea level, Yukawa Shuzo has been steadily brewing sake for centuries. The second oldest active brewery in Nagano, established in 1650, for over 370 years the Yukawa family line has been carrying the torch for sake in one of the most difficult areas to brew. Due to the high elevation of Yukawa Shuzo, there are many obstacles that must be overcome to get a successful batch of tasty premium sake.  Among the challenges is the low and slow boiling point which requires extra mastery for successful sake rice steaming. Winter temperatures are extreme with an average of -18 degrees to -10 degrees which in turn makes the work much harder and less comfortable for the brewers and the yeast less active. Using the lengthy and labour intensive brewing methods of Kimoto and Yamahai, more resilient and active yeasts are produced that result in extra flavours and uniqueness in the Yukawa sakes.

    The Yukawa 16th Kurouemon Yamahai Junmai Omachi is full-bodied and juicy with hints of tangerine and slightly savoury accents derived from the Omachi rice.
