For the 24th theartofsake Sake On-nomi, we are doing a brewery highlight on the well-loved Watanabe Brewery.
Hourai is known in the sake community for its unique ways of naming their sake (e.g. Lady Killer, Ultra Super Sadistic) and designing their labels. The 5 Hourai sakes featured in this upcoming Sake Onnomi, such as the Junmai Daiginjo Cho Do S, and Chogin Shizuku Daiginjo, are some of the most coveted and awarded sake in the market. These are sake people dream about, and you’ll be able to try them all at just $68.
Watanabe Sake Brewery is registered as a Tangible Cultural Property of Japan located in central Japan in a beautiful small town called Hida-Furukawa located in Gifu Prefecture. Stroll past the traditional wooden merchant stalls and the white-walled storehouses, observe the carp swimming in the fresh flowing stream and it is here that they proudly produce their beloved sake. The brewery is not big but the sake is world class! The Watanabe family started the brewery in 1870 with carefully selected the ingredients and stuck to the time tested and traditional brewery techniques of their founders. Mass production is not their style and are stubbornly committed to quality sake production.
Learn all about it in our upcoming On-nomi #24, happening on the 7th April 2021, 8pm, on Zoom.
