Sake of the Week #5 - Hourai Iro Otoko
Our featured Sake of the Week is Hourai Junmai Daiginjo "The Lady Killer" Iro Otoko.
Brewed by Watanabe Shuzo in Hida Town, Gifu Prefecture. The name Iro Otoko translates to Lady Killer. This sake is inspired by male host clubs, with the club hosts wanting a high end sake to serve to female clients. Light melon aromas laced with cream cheese. Complex and structured on the palate with a great depth of flavour that lingers. Elegant, well-textured yet light, with a slight crisp, mineral finish.
Watch our in-house sake sommelier, Grace, perform a re-enactment of how this sake came to be made!
