“Fukukomachi” & “Tatsuriki” In-store tasting event @ Ikebukuro

You can taste Fukukomachi, Kimura Brewery, from Akita prefecture and Tatsuriki, Honda shoten Co., Ltd. from Hyogo prefecture.

Fukukomachi (Kimura Brewery)

Akita, Japan, with its natural resources and climate, was the perfect home for rice agriculture, where the family of Shigenari Kimura, a retainer of feudal lord Hideyori Toyotomi, founded Kimura Brewery in 1615. With the stabilization of rice agriculture during the peaceful Edo period and the prosperity of the local Innai Silver Mine, Kimura Brewery flourished, and many other breweries followed in our footsteps. The arrival of the Ou Main Line by the East Japan Railway in 1905 allowed us to ship our sake beyond our prefecture. For 400 years, we have grown with the changes to our local community and continue to engage in the unique sake brewing which is rooted in our region.

Junmai Daiginjo Fukukomachi

Made with the premium sake rice, Yamadanishiki, which is polished to 40%. Enjoy the rich aroma and elegant flavor at a leisurely pace while the airy sweetness fills your mouth. With a combination of subtlety and noble presence of the finest, this is a beautifully balanced sake. We recommend it as a gift for special occasions. Serving temperature: suzu-hie (59F range).

Established 1688. The brewery, Honda shoten is commited to rice their belief based on “Rice Sake has rice taste”. Great quality Daiginjo which made from Japanese No.1 quality rice “Yamadanishiki”

The sake brewing conditions in this area are beyond perfect – the grounds are covered in a fine morning mist, and the soil used to grow the rice is rich in calcium and montmorillonite, and Honda Shoten will only do business with farmers who grow as organically and naturally as possible. The rice is dried naturally, making for high-quality brewing.

Boasts a very light nose of honeysuckle and musk melon, a light to medium body and a gorgeous true depth of flavor, and a clean cut finish.
