Celebrate the Year of the Rooster with Shirataki Shuzo’s Jozen Mizuno Gotoshi Genshu Junmai Daiginjo

Sake Tengoku is pleased to introduce this seasonally available sake to all of our customers.

This beautiful, seasonal Genshu is powerfully aromatic and flavorful on the palate. These fresh and lively flavors are the result of pressing without the dilution of additional water. We recommend a wide range of food pairings of Seafood, Poultry and Meat with full flavors and this Genshu can handle spice and heat. Classically Jozen in style with elegance and influenced by the famous water of the region.

Rice Polishing Ratio 50%  /  Alcohol 16-17%  /   SMV  -2.0

Please email julie@saketengoku or text 707.529.7409 for all orders. I would be very happy to schedule a tasting for you.

Thank you and best regards,

Julie Bath and Ken Tominaga

Sake Tengoku Special Release

We at Sake Tengoku are especially thrilled to share with you the arrival of the long awaited Hiyaoroshi Sake, a sake that is symbolic of the changing of seasons, and is especially brewed for the Fall!  This sake is pasteurized once and then stored for 8 months.  From Shirataki Shuzo, in the Niigata Prefecture, the Jozen Mizuno Gotoshi  Hiyaoroshi Namazume   will be available in limited quantities on a first come, first serve basis.

Here are some of our tasting notes:

“Forward, fresh and fruity in the nose with notes of sweet melon, cherry, and hints of applesauce, lily and vanilla.  On the palate this sake is off dry, medium bodied and rich with flavors of red plum, star anise, winter squash and notes of wet rock, accented by medium acidity, and a lingering finish.

This sake retails for $43.50 per bottle.  Please inquire to info@saketengoku.com if you would like to purchase this special Fall Release Hiyaoroshi Sake!
