Tamagawa "Man-eating Rock"2

Sake horror

Named after a scary local legend, and with sinister original artwork on the label. The sake is made with rice grown in the same village as the brewery (and the dreaded rock), which is polished on site to ginjo specification. The sake is not as fierce as the name and artwork suggests.

Tamagawa is generally associated with umami-rich brews, but this is light, crisp and dry, brewed with rice polished to ginjo grade specifications.
