high-quality cooking sake - 100% pure rice wine
Top-class cooking sake. Although self-named a ‘ryorizake’ (cooking sake) it is of much higher quality. It is a junmai sake, 100% pure, with no alcohol, sugar or salt added. The high content of amino-acid makes for extra umami, which enhances the flavour of the food. Also very drinkable drink.
Hakusen Shuzo was established in 1825 and is perhaps best known for its high quality mirin. They have been brewing sake since 1899 and use only local rice and fresh mountain water from the river Hida. The brewery is family run and is currently run by 5 family members.
