Terada Honke Katori 90 Namagenshu
Established in 1673 in Chiba, Terada Honke have been brewing continuously for over 347 years. They are purveyors of only natural yeast brewing, working exclusively with traditional Kimoto & Bodaimoto starter methods.
The Katori 90 is made with local organically grown Koshi-Hikari rice which is a table rice variety often regarded as the best rice for sushi. This Sake represents what Sake tasted like over a hundred years ago - think ‘liquid rice’ in a bottle! Polished only down to 90% (remaining) leaving a majority of the grain intact including its fats, proteins and enzymes; providing the raw ingredients for a robust and full-flavoured drink. A very rice dominated aroma, the palate shows very bright acidity with a strong savoury edge. The finish is long, dry and powerful.
