Tenshi no Makgeolli (天使のマッコリ) | Korean Alcoholic Beverage | Tanaka Shuzo Brewery (田中酒造)| Otaru

One of my favorite sake brewery is Tanaka Shuzo Brewery in Otaru, which was founded in 1899 and brews sake in a stone warehouse that has an atmosphere reminiscent of the good old days of Otaru. The stone warehouse, built in 1905, is an historical building designated by the city.

Their policy is to use 100% local ingredients for their sake; Japanese rice wine. Why are there several sake brewery in Otaru? The city is blessed with clean and tasty water, and high-quality rice is available around this area!

In this season, we can enjoy freshly brewed sake like this↓

Except normal type of sake, they serve unique sake such as doburoku; homemade-type sake↓

We can taste almost all sake before buying it. I really recommend not to drive here so that you can enjoy tasting or "drinking" sake a lot! Hahaha!!!

Are you interested in how to make sake? If so, you can observe their sake brewery anytime! Please enjoy it!

Today, I bought "Tenshi no Makgeolli (天使のマッコリ)", a new product sold from yesterday on the 18th of Nov., 2011!

Makgeolli is Korean alcoholic beverage made of flour!

They carefully selected the ingredient; flour named "Haruyutaka" from Ebetsu, Hokkaido. They brewed this makgeolli with water from Mt. Tengu in Otaru.

I love this sour taste!!!
