Watanabe Sake Brewery is located in central Japan in a beautiful small town called Hida-Furukawa, located in Gifu Prefecture. 


"Futsu-shu" is sake using rice that has been coarsely milled, usually 70% or higher, of its original size, with no added distilled alcohol. It may also contain additional ingredients, such as flavor enhancers, sugars, and acidds.


This award-winning Sake is a beautiful futsushu! Showing an elegant, clean fruitiness, characteristic of a more expensive sake, but with a satisfying, rich texture. Plump, cereal, steamed rice milled down to 70%. A round palate and gentle acidity combined with a touch of gentle sweetness and good intensity. Comes in 720mL and 300mL bottle sizes, and 180mL cup sizes.


Fresh, clean aroma, with cedar and nutmeg. Lovely complexity and balance on the palate with citrus and flowery apricot flavors, rounded and clean on the finish.
