Origin: Akita, Japan
Brewery: Yamamoto Gomei
Rice: Akita Sakekomachi
The Next5 group of breweries in Akita collaborate actively and the famed No.6 Kobo (Yeast) from ARAMASA offers gorgeous but tender aromas, gentle umami & fresh acid. For a namagenshu, it is suprisingly gentle & overall, a very well balanced sake.
Yamamoto san is one of the “Next 5”, a group of five brewery owners in Akita prefecture who have banded together to create a new Akita sake scene.
Every year they create a new sake, with each of the five managing one part of the brewing process. Through their collaboration and sharing of techniques they hope to push the traditional boundaries and create new sake for today’s generation. Their annual sake event in Akita and in Tokyo is one not to miss.
