Shizuoka Sake Tasting: Eikun Brewery-Eikun Futsushu

Eikun Brewery is an old establishment “lost” in the mountains facing the sea at Yui, Shimizu Ku, Shziuoka City.
They have the merit to still make absolutely extravagant “futsushu/regular sake” at ridiculous prices.

Like most of all futsushu (only 18% of the total production, probably the lowest in Japan), the bottles are adorned with old traditional designs!. As they are easy to conserve thy would make the perfect souvenir back home in the rest of world!

Rice milled down to 70%
Bottled in January 2010

Clarity: very clear

Goes well with any food.
A sake for everyday home drinking!
