Distillery Info

Gekkeikan Horin sake brand comes from a combination of the mythological sacred bird and the Kylin. Starting in the 1900s, high-quality sake shipped to the Tokyo region was labeled “Horin Masamune.”

In 1978, Gekkeikan's highest-class Junmai Daiginjo sake started to be sold under the name “Horin Gekkeikan,” a name it retains today. Sold in black bottles with sinuous curves reminiscent of a woman, the gilded label shows “Horin” (鳳麟) written in calligraphy

A combination of fresh spring water, Yamada Nishiki rice (known as the ‘king of sake rice’), Gohyakumangoku rice milled to 50%, and the skill of the sake master, result in this classic example of a Fushimi style Junmai Daiginjo. Horin has a delicately fruity nose, its subtle flavours are well-balanced, and it is exceptionally smooth with a long clean finish.
