The 1703 recipe for Genroku Redux uses only half the amount of water compared with modern brewing methods and ferments using natural yeast and natural lactic acid bacilli in wooden barrels. This results in a dark amber-coloured sake with thicker viscosity. Genroku Redux is like stepping back in time and trying sake from a bygone era.
Rich, bold & absorbing, this sake has notes of nuts, dried fruits, fig, brown sugar, liquorice and soy. Sweet, devilishly delicious & with buckets of umami, Genroku Redux can be enjoyed by itself straight, warmed or on the rocks. It also pairs well with rich, heavy flavours such as game & pate, also chocolate, nuts, mature cheeses & BBQ flavours.
