Shirayuki Edo Genroku Junmai is a modern-day production of a recipe that originated in the late 17th century (the Edo Genroku period), utilizing wild yeast and sake brewing tools and casks of great antiquity. This recipe calls for less water resulting in a more viscous profile and higher concentrations of amino acids. The Konishi family have long been the guardians of old-world brewing traditions as documented in their uninterrupted daily brewing logs that date back to the late 1600s. The recipe has been passed on from generation to generation by this family down to the current company owner and president, Shintaro Konishi, the 15th generation.

Tasting Notes: This is a savory style sake with hints of oak, caramel, dried red fruit, tobacco and dark berries. It is best served on the rocks or at room temperature.
