01 Freshly pressed genshu only available here

With the usual Japanese sake, the taste differs depending on the fermentation progress and therefore is adjusted at the final process before being sold. However, freshly pressed genshu is sake before the adjustments are made. With a high 20% alcohol content and no heat treat, you can enjoy a deep flavor. The genshu is sold by measure in this facility and can be bought after 4 different types of tastings. Enjoy the taste of Japanese sake unique to Rengakan adjacent to the sake brewery.
