Zaruso Hourai Junmai Ginjo Queeen Namagenshu (720ml) 残草蓬莱 純米吟醸 Queeen (クイーン) 生原酒

An ABV of 12% with a great deal more character than many of the low alcohol brews on the market. Starting with a refreshing aroma resulting from the use of #7 yeast, hints of apple combine with good umami notes. As a Genshu it provides a juicy sensation, a delicate balance of sweetness and acidity, and a natural effervescence from direct bottling which makes it that much more refreshing.

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.
