Hokko Genshu’s distinct characteristic comes from when it is being made. To regular common Japanese sake, water is add to dilute the alcohol to 15~16% but Hokko Genshu has no water added, the alcohol rate retains at 20%.
Recommend to serve in chilled or warmed. Needless to say, sushi and sashimi is a perfect match to Hokko Genshu but it also goes well with steaks and French dishes and other foods with a full body flavour.
