Established in 1673, Terada Honke have been brewing continuously for over 345 years. They are purveyors of only natural yeast brewing, working almost exclusively with traditional kimoto & bodaimoto starter methods. The Kaikoshu 2005 is a ‘koshu’ (aged) sake made with locally grown Miyamanishiki & Koshihikari rice. Aged in bottle at the brewery until release, this is a wonderful expression of Koshu. Incredibly complex with a malt & toffee character. The palate has bold acidity with a long grippy finish. Enjoy as a degestif or think in terms of sercial madeira or whiskey when planning a pairing.
