Established in 1673 in Chiba, Terada Honke have been brewing continuously for over 347 years. They are purveyors of only natural yeast brewing, working exclusively with traditional Kimoto & Bodaimoto starter methods.
The Katori 90 is made with local organically grown Koshi-Hikari rice which is a table rice variety often regarded as the best rice for sushi. This Sake represents what Sake tasted like over a hundred years ago - think ‘liquid rice’ in a bottle! Polished only down to 90% (remaining) leaving a majority of the grain intact including its fats, proteins and enzymes; providing the raw ingredients for a robust and full-flavoured drink. A very rice dominated aroma, the palate shows very bright acidity with a strong savoury edge. The finish is long, dry and powerful.
