Zaruso Horai Tokubetsu Junmai Hiyaoroshi (720ml) 残草蓬莱 特別純米ひやおろし

$66.30

Once pasteurized, this Hiyaoroshi expresses the characteristically higher acidity and apple aromas of many of the sake of the Zaruso Hourai brand, maintaining a great combination of sweet, sour and bitter. When enjoyed chilled, the experience of this sake is juicy and refreshing. However, when enjoyed warmed, the acidity is enhanced and the sweetness becomes bolder.

Having spent half a year maturing, the bright character is elevated by a round smoothness developed over time.

Oya Takashi Shuzo大矢孝酒造

Now operating under its 8th generation of Kuramoto, the brewery has 2 well established brands, "Zaruso Hourai" and "Shoryu Hourai". The Zaruso Hourai brand represents sake made in the Sokujo brewing method in which lactic acid is added to the yeast starter, a more modern and consistently used method of brewing. This brand includes the Queeen, a full flavoured genshu, yet slightly lower alcohol, that has become a favorite amongst younger sake fans who want something that does not make them so easily intoxicated.
