Shizuoka Sake Tasting 15-2: Senju Brewery/Daiginjo

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



Senju is a very old Brewery in Iwata City which along the years has absorbed a couple of neigbouring Breweries. They are the only Brewery in Shizuoka having a license to produce brewery alcohol. Obviously they make a great use as demonstrated in this particular brew.
Senju Brewery does not give many indications on their sake, apart that it is made from Yamada Nishiki rive milled down to anextarvagant 35%.

Clarity: very clear

Colour: practically transparent

Aroma: light/fruity

Body: light/elegant

Taste: complex. Fruity/peach/anise/strawberries later revealing liquorice and bitter choclate.

Overall: very elegant, a session sake. To be drunk on its own, although it would go well with almost any food.
