Shizuoka Sake Tasting 11-1: Hatsukame Brewery

Please check Shizuoka Gourmet Blog for all the gastronomy in Shizuoka Prefecture!



Hatsukame Shirushi (First Tortoise Seal) was brewed in December 2006 by Hatsukame Brewery in Okabe Cho, Shida Gun. Their toji is from Ishikawa prefecture and of the Nanbu School.

It is Ginjo, rice milled to 60%, Dryness +1 (almost sweet for Shizuoka) and acidity 1.2 (quite low).

Aroma: light/Grapefruit/Orange/Plum

Colour: faint amber

Clarity: vey clear

Body: light

Taste: Almost sweet, easy to drink. Grapes and oranges. Does not stay long in mouth.
Would be perfect with “oden”!
