Houou Biden is a renowned sake brand founded by century-old Kobayashi Shuzo from Hokkaido. The Shuzo’s creations rank very highly in the sake world. Established in Sapporo in 1878, Kobayashi Shuzo has always insisted on using quality rice, water and having native sake shokunin to meticulously brew the ‘Glory of the North’: Kita No Nishiki. One of the biggest breweries in Hokkaido, Kobayashi Shuzo was founded over a century ago and has since invested heavily on developing a modern production line. In recent years, Kobayashi Shuzo has branched out to opening restaurants and is now considered a must-visit site for tourists who yearn to learn more about Hokkaido’s history.This Junmai Daiginjo has the luxurious aroma of muscat grapes, and a complex, seductive flavor that evolves whilst in the mouth. The brewers suggest serving in a wine glass or decanting slightly to enjoy the peak of the flavor's depth, the softness of the rice, and the smooth, elegant texture.
