The Watari Bune Junmai Ginjo uses a prized rice varietal of the same name that has not been grown for nearly a hundred years (due to later harvests and pest problems in the 1920s). After obtaining frozen samples of the rice seedlings from the Japanese government and planting them in the late 80's, the Huchu Homare brewery was able to once again produce sake from this heirloom varietal.

It is a flavorful sake with hints of anise and a pleasant muskiness. It also possesses faint tropical notes and nice acidity in the finish. Truly a unique sake with an equally special story.
