Modern Senkin MukuJunmai Daiginjo
This Junmai Daiginjo is the brewery’s flagship sake, brewed with 100% Yamadanishiki rice. This intense sake has intense perfumes of ripe fruits such as peach and pear, a warm luscious texture, juicy sweetness and a long finish.
Produced by Senkin Brewery
Senkin’s sake are brighter and juicier than other sake; their focus is principally on deviating from the norm with elements of higher acidity and residual sugar levels.
Applying the same concept as a Domaine or Estate, Senkin uses the same water for brewing as that which grows their rice, and they will only use contract-farmed Omachi, Yamada Nishiki, or Kame no O rice grown within 5 minutes of the brewery. They proudly implement both modern and traditional brewing methods across their various sake series.
