TAMAGAWA “Man-eating Rock”
Sake horror! Named after a scary local legend, and with sinister original artwork on the label. The sake is made with rice grown in the same village as the brewery (and the dreaded rock), which is polished on site to ginjo specification. The sake is not as fierce as the name and artwork suggests. Tamagawa is generally associated with umami-rich brews, but this is light, crisp and dry. Wild mushroom sauce, roast chicken, tomato pasta is delicious with this sake.
