Beyond proud to finally have the one and only Juji Asahi in Portland. YES!

A stunning pasteurized genshu from the brewery that produces ritual sake for the famous Izumo Taisha shrine. Powerful and intense rustic flavors. Notes of cocoa and spice with a robust dryness and an almost whiskey-like smokiness. Undiluted, so it is exceptionally full bodied and complex. It has that BAM but also a tart blueberry skin note on the finish, a tension and grip, an entrancing mineral texture, that makes it a greatsword-- not a bludgeon.

Made with Omachi rice grown right in Izumo.
