Rich, earthy, and full bodied, this junmai genshu holds nothing back it’s a flavorful sake. Nice for pairing with similarly spicy foods, e.g. curries or charcuterie. Serve chilled, just below room temperature will bring out the buttery texture or warmed to enhance its bold flavor.

This lightly cloudy Nigori has delicate aromas of lychee and apricot, reminiscent of spring flowers, a creamy, supple mouthfeel and a clean finish due to the use of more highly refined sake lees. The Bunny is soft and approachable, and this refreshing and utterly drinkable style Nigori strikes an excellent balance between sweet and dry. Try with strawberries other fresh fruit desserts.

Sequoia’s founders have created a new barrel-aged sake where American frontier spirit meets Japanese tradition. We start with our Junmai Ginjo Genshu sake then age it in American bourbon barrels for 3 months. This unique process allows for a complex integration of flavors. Sequoia’s Genshu brings out the dried fruit flavor, infusing vanilla and smoky-molasses to create a complex, yet still delicate, sake. This is a one of a kind sipping sake to be savored and shared.
Appearance: Pale amber-gold in color.
Aroma: Up-front in the nose with big bold smoky-molasses and subtle notes of vanilla brought on by the American oak with just a mellowing of cocoa.
Palate: Dry, moderate-plus bodied with savory bourbon-like tones on mid-palate. The finish is fresh with sustained, well-rounded dried fruit, lingering just long enough to let you know this is sake, smooth all the way.
Alcohol: 17-18 %
Size: 375 ml
Barrel: American charred oak, bourbon aged in barrel for 24 months.
