Brand of The Month - Shichiken


The use of water in sake making is a very important subject. Shichiken uses water from the Minami-Alps in Hakushu to brew elegant and complex sake. With five years of repeated failures and challenges, the 300-year-old brewery, Shichiken is one of the pioneers in using the “in-bottle second fermentation” for making sparkling sake, similar to how a Champagne is made.

With more time, labour work, techniques and passion, the magic happens discreetly within the bottle and the sake turns out to be a sparkling one with unique fine bubbles boasting fruity ginjo aroma and a plush mouthfeel. Your taste buds would be greeted by the notes of melon, peach, brioche and yeasty flavours. Lively. Fascinating and absolutely satiny.
