Man Eating Rock


Man Eating Rock is a signature sake from Kinoshita Shuzo. Named after an ancient tale, in which the rock next by the brewery awakens at night and eats one person from the village. The taste is not as scary, wonderful notes of lychee, plum and hidden banana are carried by expressive minerality and a dry finish. A great sake to drink casually along with hearty dishes.

KINOSHITA SHUZO is located near the coast of northern Hyogo, in a small town called Kyotango. In 1842 the prestigeous brewery was founded, the name TAMAGAWA translates to "river of jewels" which derives from the Kawakamidani river that is located directly next to the brewery. Master brewer Philip Harper is born in England, and the only non-japanese toji (master brewer) in Japan. His sake are edgy and highly complex, while being just fun to drink! For KINOSHITA SHUZO freshly pressed sake is just the beginning of a journey. Many of their sake are aged in the bottle at low temperatures for several years. Furthermore, a variety of TAMAGAWA sake are made in the labour intense yamahai and kimoto method.
