Taiheikai, meaning “Pacific Ocean,” was the original brand of the Huchu Homare Brewery when it was founded in 1854. The Yamauchi’s named their first sake after the Pacific Ocean, because Ibaraki is on the ocean, and the ocean is an integral part of the region. Made using Gohyakumankoku Rice, it shares in a certain house style with their sakes made from Watari Bune rice, or Joto Pink which is also made by Huchu Homare— that is, abundant but balanced fruitiness offset by light nuttiness and earthiness. The front label of this sake is a traditional back label, listing important technical information such as that listed below.

On the palate, you'll find abundant but balanced fruit offset by light nuttiness and earthiness. Serve chilled on its own, with yakitori, ramen, or miso-glazed cod, and anything you might think to enjoy a fruity cocktail with.
