Ōkarakuchi is the ‘house’ dry-style of sake from Akishika Shuzō. The word ‘kara’ means ‘dry’ in Japanese and in this case ‘Ō-kara-kuchi’ means extra dry palate. This sake has an intensely spicy nose with hints of honeydew melon and lychee. The palate on the Ōkarakuchi certainly possesses a mineral-like dryness that lingers with balanced acidity.
