Sohomare "Tuxedo" - Junmai Daiginjo / Kimoto Sake
"Incisive taste, supple body, subdued aroma."
A contemporary rendition of old kimoto style, achieved through careful blending and ageing. Soft yet poised at first sip, then body and flavour depth—all enhanced by a subdued, elegant aroma. A masculine daiginjo expression.

Sohomare sake has been owned and operated by the Kono family since its founding in 1872 and is a prominent small sake brewery in the Tochigi region of Japan. For five generations, the Kono family has devoted itself to the art of creating a genuinely local sake that is made of the most excellent Yamada-Nishiki rice and hand-brewed the old Kimoto way. As Sohomare’s newest family-owner, Mr Jun Kono continues leading its tradition of hand-crafting each sake.
