Yamadanishiki + Omachi
Once a year, this is the only time of year when Jyushiyo's raw sake is available. The Juyondai Genshu Funatare Orikarami Junmai Ginjo is a distinctive sake variety in that many drinkers for this sake have likened it to other international wines, particularly the taste and how it goes down. As with most sake varieties classified as junmai ginjo, this sake was made with a combination of Yamada Nishiki rice and Omachi rice that were both polished up to 50 percent, giving access to the starchier interior for the distinct flavor. It is undiluted, giving it a more full-bodied flavor, and a stronger alcohol content, rated at 17 percent. This sake, however, is also only seasonally made, and as such, demand for it fluctuates.
