Zaruso Horai Tokubetsu Junmai Gohyakumangoku 60 (720ml) 残草蓬莱 特別純米 五百万石 60

Wonderfully fresh and vibrant due to only undergoing one pasteurisation, dry and light yet also expressing good richness of acidity, umami and moderate sweetness. Enjoyable at any temperature, chilled and crisp or wamed and melow.

Oya Takashi Shuzo大矢孝酒造

Now operating under its 8th generation of Kuramoto, the brewery has 2 well established brands, "Zaruso Hourai" and "Shoryu Hourai". The Zaruso Hourai brand represents sake made in the Sokujo brewing method in which lactic acid is added to the yeast starter, a more modern and consistently used method of brewing. This brand includes the Queeen, a full flavoured genshu, yet slightly lower alcohol, that has become a favorite amongst younger sake fans who want something that does not make them so easily intoxicated.
