Honjozo shu(本醸造酒)


Honjozo-shu is one of the premium sake, too.

Material – rice, koji rice and brewed alcohol

The amount of brewing alcohol added for balance the flavor is less than 10% of the total weight of the white rice used to make the sake, which is less than that of standard sake.

Koji rice ratio – 15% or more

Polishing ratio – 70% or less

Honjozo-shu is a sake with an aroma and taste similar to Junmai-shu but lighter and mellower than Junmai-shu.
