Tamagawa Junmai ginjo "Omachi"

Tamagawa Junmai ginjo "Omachi"

Historic rice variety

Most rice strains grown in Japan today are modern hybrids, but Omachi rice was discovered in Okayama Prefecture in 1866. It is the only strain to have been cultivated without a break for so long. We aim to brew for nuts and herbs rather than a floral style, with an undercurrant of fruit. Like most Tamagawa products, this is very much a food sake, with a particular affinity for the "wild" vegetables (rape flowers, bamboo shoots, bracken and so on) prized in spring.
