The “Denshu" series


What is “Denshu"?

“Den-shu" is a sake brand produced by Nishida Sake Brewery in Aomori Prefecture. it was been founded  in the 1965s. This was a time when sake consumption was declining. One of the reasons is that the variety of alcoholic beverages such as beer, shochu, whiskey, and wine has increased. Sake made by natural rice without using additives such as brewed alcohol. That is the origin of the name 'Tashu’. You can feel the commitment to the production of “Den-shu" as if it were a rush!.

However, it is very difficult to achieve it. In fact, as the consumption of sake decreases, the number of sake breweries is has had collapsed.

Therefore, it became necessary for the sake industry to boost once again to the world the “charm of sake that other liquor does not have”.

Nishida Sake Brewery is no exception, and it seems that there were times when manufacturer has had a hard time.

Despite that 'Denshu’ is a sake that was born from the desire to “return to the origin of sake and make a stately genuine sake." As the efficiency and mechanization of sake progressed, we started the traditional sake that was particular about making pure rice sake by hand. It took three years to commercialize it, and it was released on October 1, 1974.

Who is “Nishida Sake Brewery"?

Nishida Sake Brewery, which brews rice wine, was founded in 1878. Located in Michinoku Aomori, the northernmost tip of Hon-shu, has a factory in Ohama, Aburakawa, Aomori City. Nishida is the only sake brewery in Aomori City.

By the way, Aburakawa was once called “Ohama" and was the most prosperous port on the east coast of the Tsugaru Peninsula from Kamakura to the Warring States period. Located at the base of the Tsugaru Peninsula, facing Mutsu Bay. Sake is brewed in a land blessed with the bounty of the mountains and seas. Not only “Denshu" but also “Kikuizumi" is brewed, and won the gold medal, which is the highest honor in the industry, has been awarded many times at the national and Tohoku sake appraisals.

“Denshu" is brewed with pure rice, but “Kikuizumi", which has been brewed since its establishment, also minimizes the addition of brewing alcohol.
In addition, it is a conscientious ordinary sake that does not use any sugar, and the price is more reasonable than “Denshu". “It’s hard to get Denshu sake …" For those who like that, it might be a good idea to try Kikuizumi.

 Commitment to Den-shu!

The secret to the deliciousness of Denshu is not just “because it is pure rice sake".

“Denshu", which sings “Japanese sake made only from rice grown in rice fields," is particular about rice. Even now, the unfading commitment and feelings for rice have been passed down. The commitment is tremendous, and we asked a specific farmer to cultivate the former Aomori prefecture’s first sake brewing suitable rice called “Kojo Nishiki", which is called phantom rice. It has been revived splendidly and is now on sale to the local market as “Denshu Kojo-noーNishiki".

In addition, we also sell “Junmai Daiginjo Hyakushiho Denshu", which uses “Hanaso", a rice suitable for sake brewing that is said to be comparable to “Yamada Nishiki".
Huawei is the rice suitable for sake brewing, which was born at the Aomori Prefectural Agriculture and Forestry Research Center, and is exactly the rice that the locals are proud of. At “Junmai Daiginjo Hyakushiho Denshu", it seems that the essence is used for all of the koji rice and kake kome!. by carefully hand-finishing such carefully selected sake rice, the sake will have a strong umami taste.

“Denーshu" is a typical pure rice sake among Japanese sake, and at the same time, it can be called Aomori’s local sake, which is unforgettable sake among the Aomori locals. Another point of interest is the creation of an environment in the brewery where Toji (Chief Brewer) and female brewers can work comfortably. They use cranes to carry heavy objects, and play music so that they can relax at work.

Such a comfortable working environment is also an essential condition for polite sake brewing.

“Denshu" is an excellent sake in combination with meals.

The real greatness of Denshu sake is not just its commitment to rice.

It is “when you drink with meals" suits perfectly. For example, when combined with dry dishes, Denーshu brings out the soft sweetness of rice.

On the contrary, when combined with a sweet dish such as simmered pumpkin, the crisp, light and dry taste of Denshu spreads throughout. Yes, the greatness of Denshu is that the taste can be changed by the combined dishes!, by the way, you can enjoy various flavors depending on the temperature range you drink.

When you taste Denーshu, please try it together with your meal, not recommended it on its own.
