Hayashi Honten is a new and innovative brewery in the city of Gifu, Japan. Their driving focus is on 'remembering the old while embracing the new' - a sentiment very evident in their work as they produce new and exciting products using old school techniques and crafting everything by hand. They source their water from the Nagara and Kiso rivers which flow through the city of Gifu from the Dainichigatake Mountains, or the 'Japanese Alps.'
With the distinctive Kabuki mask design, the Hayashi Honten sakes are instantly recognisable - and Black Face is no different. The sake is an award winning one which is made to the finest polishing level - Junmai Daiginjo. Although these styles are usually made to be intense and fruity, this is more restrained.
