"The Kanji characters for Rairaku translate into “come joy” and when you meet Rairaku owner Ibaraki-San, you can tell that he is as passionate about consuming sake as he is when he produces it. The Junmai Nama Genshu is bursting with layers of red raspberry and strawberry; it is full-bodied and rich while finishing dry." Reviewed 9/30/2014

Clear with a polished platinum cast. Aromas of cinnamon rice pudding, maraschino cherry, and delicate anise follow through on a silky entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium-full body with good depth and balance. Finishes with a long, praline, Asian pear, toast, and lemongrass accented fade. A delicious, subtly complex and elegant sake that would be a nice introduction to the category.
"Origin of Purity is a unique addition to the VC Ginjo line-up as it is our first sake made with Omachi rice. Discovered in 1859, Omachi is the only pure rice strain that has been grown consistently in Japan. This is quite an impressive feat as Omachi is one of the tallest sake rices which makes it incredibly difficult to harvest and susceptible to damage by typhoons and strong storms. We're lucky that Rihaku has found one of the best Omachi growers in Japan. This genshu (undiluted sake) is as pure as it gets and is a must for your sake-loving customers!" -Importer
