Hakusan water (medium hard water), which is the groundwater of the brewery, is pumped from about 200 meters underground and used in all parts of brewing. Although it is produced in small quantities with about 500 stones produced, they are particular about "hand-made brewing that cannot be expressed in a mass-produced brewery, and sake brewing that does not allow any compromise by hand."
The label "Shinku" is dyed in bright red as it is a type of sake that is quite sharp even in Shiratakesen.
The initial mouthfeel is smooth and soft, and the taste of rice spreads slowly. Aged 1 year before release, it produces a robust flavour. However, it sharpens towards the end. You can enjoy it in a wide range of temperatures, from cold to hot.
