Chiba’s Tohei Brewery makes a great series of sake that showcase the different profiles of the rice used in them. This one is made from suisei, one of the three sake rice varietals from Hokkaido that usually makes a mild tasting sake. This particular sake is elegant and soft with a touch of sweetness and a fruit forward aroma.

Tasting Notes

Top nose of fruit reminiscent of apple, banana, bubblegum, lily, melon and pear. Equally as fragrant on the palate, packing plenty of flavor inside a taut, well-balanced profile with a refreshing acidity and gentle sweetness. Finish is sharp and fairly long.

Brewery Story

Sake to Celebrate

The name Fukuiwai's two Japanese characters stand for 'fortune' and 'celebration', and their sakes are designed to be reflective of that. Made to be easy to pair with food and having a good balance of aroma and taste, they are both unique and approachable and ideal for a 'celebration'. Furthermore, many of the Fukuiwai sakes highlight a particular rice variety. This one is made with the excellent Suisei, a sake rice from Hokkaido.
