The latest creation from a 348 year old sake brewery: a special sake just to drink with ramen!


If you have raman and Sake, What else do you need?

There is some debate as to whether it is correct or not to refer to Sake like rice “wine”, since it is actually brewed in a process more similar to making beer. That said, sake has a culinary similarity to wine in that many connoisseurs believe that good sake becomes even more delicious when paired with food so that their flavors can complement each other.

So it has Daiichi Shuzo Kaika, a sake maker in Tochigi Prefecture who has been in business since 348 years, thought. Sano, the town where Kaika’s brewery is located, has many ramen restaurants, so why not create a sake to associate specifically with ramen?

And so Haruka Akifuyu Sake Noodles was born. Well, technically the anniversary of the special sake was last summer, when a limited quantity batch went on sale. It sold out fairly quickly, however, and given its popularity, Kaika has now put it into regular production, with sake ramen going on sale full time starting October 1.

Kaika says that Noodle Sake Haruka Akifuyu has a crisp and crisp flavor, which should allow it to play well with the more potent seasonings found in a bowl of ramen. The sake was developed in collaboration with ramen review Satoko Morimoto, who knows a thing or two about ramen as she would have eat about 600 bowls per year.

For its summer batch, the Noodle Sake Haruka Akifuyu was only available in large bottles, but Kaika now offers it in “sake cup” size, 180 milliliters (6.1 ounces), just enough for one person to fully enjoy it in one sitting with a bowl of ramen, and at the very affordable price of 396 yen (US $ 3.65).

It is written on the glass “Good sake” and “Good ramen”, with the tacit understanding that if you have these two, you don’t need to explicitly state the obvious “Good life” part of the equation. .

It should be noted that while Japanese food and beverage companies sometimes offer some pretty unusual novelty flavors on a limited time, Kaika’s intention with this sake is not just to get a laugh and a one-time purchase. from customers. “We want this to become a sake that ramen restaurants around the world will serve, of course, in five or even 100 years,” and if you want to get into the starting point of this aspirational story, Noodle Sake Haruka Akifuyu can be ordered online from Kaika here.
