Junmai Daiginjo – Super Demon Slayer
With a nose of soft, ripe fruit and a tinge of citrus, this is the best-selling premium sake in the United States. Notes of cantaloupe and lychee blend into a silky flow from the first sip to the well-built finish. This is a perfect example of a “round” sake, or one that blends flavor and acidity in equal proportions. Best served chilled or at room temperature. Wine fans who enjoy the elegance of a Meursault or the lushness of a Saint-Émilion will love this sake.

About the Producer
Oomuraya Brewery was established in 1832 in Shimada, Shizuoko prefecture and is located along the Ohi River, which flows from Japan’s southern Alps (home to Mount Fuji), in the center of the country, to the Pacific Ocean. Wakatake Onikoroshi sake is historically famous for having comforted many weary travelers crossing the Ohi and the town once prospered with lodging. Despite the great water quality, Oomuraya is the only remaining brewery in Shimada today. It is run by Mr. Keisaji Matsunaga, the sixth-generation owner. The current Toji, or Brewmaster, is Mr. Satoru Hibino. The team is very small -5 to 7 people- and dedicated to preserving one of the most important traditional industries of Japan for the next generation. Together, the Wakatake Super Demon Slayer & Demon Slayer are the most popular premium sakes in America.
