Zaruso Hourai Karakuchi Junmai Green label Namagenshu (720ml) 残草蓬莱 辛口 純米 緑ラベル 生原酒

A unique unpasteurised expression of an umami-rich karakuchi sake that boasts a zippy & fresh mouthfeel. Mildly spicy with gentle & fresh effervescence on the mid-palate that tapers off towards the finish.

Karakuchi (辛口) or dry sakes should not be devoid of character & flavour & this is a truly a standout.

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.
