The taste is the same as that of Japanese sake except that it is made using only rice malt, but it has a perfect balance of elegant sweetness and refreshing acidity that is reminiscent of the noble rot wines of the world.
Aged for more than three years, it has acquired its unique aroma, beautiful amber color and richness of taste, and has brought out the full charm of aged sake.
This is a long-matured sake made in 2005.
Homare Shuzo Brewery
Kosaku Karahashi, who was a rice wholesaler and then a manufacturer of miso and malted rice
In 1918, the brewery was transferred to the present location in Atsuyo-Kano-cho, Kitakata City, where the company was founded as Kanoh Shuzo Co.
Later, due to business expansion, the brewery was moved to its current location in Matsuyama-cho, Kitakata City and changed its name to Karahashi Sake Brewery and Homare Sake Brewing Company, and grew to become one of the leading breweries in the Tohoku region with its stable quality and continuous technical improvement.
The company's flagship brand, "Aizu Homare," was named "Aizu" in hiragana to make the name of Aizu sake known throughout Japan.
It was very unusual to use hiragana for a brand of sake at the time.
The calligraphy of "Aizu Homare" was written by a modern calligrapher born in Nagano Prefecture, Mr. Tenrai Hidai.
