Akishika was founded in Osaka prefecture in 1886, and under the present 6th generation owners this tiny brewery is renowned for creating some of Japan’s most exceptional and unique sake. All of their sake show great structure, acid and body which enable them to age extremely well. There's no better evidence of this ageing potential than their signature sake Okushika, released at the start of its drinking window as a 4 year old. Junmai Ginjo sake that is unfiltered (muroka), unpasteurised (nama), and undiluted (genshu).

Tasting note: Displays a medium lemon colour in the glass. Aromas are deep and rich, showing rice bran, biscuit, green melon, faint mushroom, marzipan and white chocolate. The palate is full bodied showing more of the white chocolate, nougat, green melon, a faint quince spice with and a long, dry finish. A unique style of sake, layers of complexity due to the extra ageing in bottle, enhancing the savoury elements. Drink chilled. [2010 vintage tasted]
