Mr. Nakamura, owner of Hamamatsu-Tenjigura Brewery in hamamatsu City, recommended us this particular brew (last bottle available!)
I asked my good friend, Miss Mika Sakurai and her father, Toshio, to taste it for me!

Hamamatsu-Tenjingura Brewery/Shusseijo Junmai Nama Genshu Muroka (unfiltered)
Rice: Yamada Nishiki (Shizuoka Prefecture, 100%)
Rice milled down to 60%
Yeast: Shizuoka NEW-5
Alcohol: 18=19 degrees

Clarity: Very clear

Colour: Light Golden Tinge

Aroma: Sweet, bananas

Body: Velvety

Taste: Sweet. Fruity: Bananas. Strong alcohol. Drinks slowly. Nice acidity appears later.

Overall: This sake tasted sweet with a welcome acidity to achieve a great balance.
Full-bodied and aromatic due to its unfiltered character.
Very enjoyable aroma. We both loved its taste and balance (Toshio Sakurai hails from Nagano Prefecture and reckons this is very good sake)

This is a fairly extraordinary liqueur that Gaijin Tonic is going to scream about when he learns that it can be bought only at Hamamatsu Brewery shop as they only make very small amounts of it!
It is made from red plums growing in the vicinity and contains no colouring or taste additives whatsoever. Though it is fairly sweet, the fair amount of alcohol (14~15 %) makes it a solid liqueur which can be appreciated on the rocks or, like the Missus did, mixed with a dry white wine to be called “Hamamatu Kir”!
You had better reserve the next batch!

“Ribaishu”/Red Plum Liqueur
Alcohol: 14~15%
Red plums extract, Japanese plums extract, kome/rice shochu. Natural sugars.
