Housen Nami no Oto Loin sake is a very special Junmai Daginjo sake, i.e. a sake of the highest quality, with a rice polishing degree of 40%. Only Yamada Nishiki rice from Hyogo Prefecture is used. This rice is considered the best rice for Junmai Daiginjo sake. The Loin Junmai Daiginjo impresses with a fantastic complexity with a lot of depth and a strong umami. The texture is slightly sparkling. A fine spiciness shows in the finish. It has a very fresh taste of pineapple and peach and an intense rice aroma.
Housen Nami no Oto Junmai Daiginjo Loin Sake is produced by the Sasaki Sake Brewery in Natori in Miyagi Prefecture. The brewery was built in 1871. Miyagi sake is considered one of the highest quality in Japan and has also won many awards. Unfortunately, the devastating tsunami in 2011 hit the prefecture hard, and the Sasaki Brewery was almost completely destroyed. But already in the following winter of 2012, Sasaki set up a provisional brewery and began brewing sake again. In the meantime, the Sake Kura has been completely rebuilt on the old site. Now, 150 years of experience meet state-of-the-art technology at Sasaki, and this makes sake more exciting than ever before.
The Loin Sake is very complex and intense. A fine sweetness pairs with an elegant rice aroma. It has ripe fruit notes of pineapple and peach with a sparkling finish.
In food pairing, this Junmai Daiginjo is ideal with seafood, tempura, sashimi, white fish carpaccio, sweet desserts and soft cheeses.
You should definitely enjoy this premium sake well chilled. We recommend a special sake glass or alternatively a white wine glass. By the way, "Housen" means treasure ship, and "Nami no Oto" means the sound of the waves.

About Sasaki Sake Brewery
Sasaki Shuzoten was founded in 1871 in Natori in the Yuriage district of Miyagi Prefecture. The sake kura is run by two brothers in the fifth generation. While the younger brother is responsible for sake production as Toji, the older one takes care of the entire management and administration of the brewery. Like almost every sake brewery in Miyagi, the devastating tsunami in 2011 hit the Sasaki brewery very hard. The company headquarters building, which was a registered material cultural asset of Japan, was completely destroyed. Fortunately, the production warehouse, located on a slightly elevated area, was spared by the tsunami. The two brothers received support from all over the country to rebuild the brewery. First, a temporary brewery was built in the Natori City Reconstruction Industrial Park to restart production. In 2019, a new sake brewery was built at the old site. With the new brewery, cutting-edge technology now meets five generations of experience, making Sasaki sake more exciting than ever before. The town of Natori is blessed with the best water from the river of the same name and the Abukuba River. Sasaki uses almost exclusively local rice from Miyagi Prefecture for its sake.
