Taiheikai Tokubetsu Junmai Sake (720ml)

SKU #1226891

Taiheikai, which means "Pacific Ocean", is made by the same brewery as Watari Bune. It is their original brand, which they have made since 1854. They named their first sake after the Pacific Ocean because the region, Ibaraki, is on the Pacific Ocean and they hoped to ship their sake to America some day. More than 150 years after creating this brand, they finally shipped it to the U.S.and we are able to enjoy this lively and delicious sake here. Taiheikai is not made with Watari Bune rice, but rather Gohyakumankoku, but it still shares in a certain house style: abundant but balanced fruitiness offset by light nuttiness and earthiness. It spends two to six months in tank before being bottled. Brewed at The Huchu Homare Brewery located in the town of Ishioka, in Ibaraki prefecture, just an hour from Tokyo by train. Hundreds of years ago, Ishioka was the capital, or huchu, of Ibaraki. The Huchu’s cherished spring water was called Huchu Rokui. Medium soft and iron-free, it is perfect for brewing saké. When the first generation Yamauchi founded the brewery in 1854, he named it Huchu Homare or "Pride of Huchu" to celebrate the history of Ishioka and its water. Today, the brewery is a national cultural landmark, producing just twelve thousand cases of saké per year.
