About Genshu Sake

About Genshu Sake
Genshu literally means “cask strength”, and is used to describe sake that has not been diluted. All saké is fermented at 20% alcohol and most have distilled water added to lower the alcohol content to 14-16%. Genshu saké is very full bodied/flavored and should be paired with dishes that are similarly robust in nature.
