This sake is fermented to its extreme limits in a very traditional method. Extremely dry, full-bodied and with a concentrated taste, yet with robust flavor and a relatively high acidity.

The KARIHO brewery was established about 90 years ago. Since then, we have continued to strictly maintain the traditional and original methods with pride in our craftsmanship, which has allowed us to be successful in our business efforts.Akita prefecture is well known as a source of high quality water and fine rice, both of which are natural prerequisites for brewing great sake. Since it is located in the northern region of Japan, fermentation takes place at very low temperatures in the extremely cold wintertime, using a very unique brewing method.
This sake goes well with more moderately flavored dishes. Recommended drinking temperature: 15-20C or 30-40C.
Located towards the northern end of Japan's main island of Honshu is the mountainous prefecture of Akita, with its cold winters and heavy snowfall. The fresh air and low temperatures provide the ideal environment for sake fermentation. We have two breweries, DEWATSURU and KARIHO. DEWATSURU is a refined sake that has a soft and subtly gentle flavor, By contrast, KARIHO, made from hard water, is much drier, with a lively, crisp character.
