Hachinohe Shurui Ringo Pom-Pom (八戸酒類 りんごぽむぽむ)

Hachinohe Shurui Ringo Pom-Pom (八戸酒類 りんごぽむぽむ) is made of rice grown in Aomori and milled to 70% and Kyokai No. 77 yeast.

The product name and label were designed to express the freshness and lightness of the apples: the bottle is a transparent bottle with three red apples. So what about the name? The French word for 'apple' is 'pomme'. Using this cute sound, if you read 'three apples' on the label, you get "apple (ringo), apple (pomme), apple (pomme)," resulting in 'Ringo Pom Pom'. The bottle has a fluttering apple leaf charm around its neck. This sake has a surprising apple flavour and a delicate balance of acidity and sweetness. Serve well chilled (around 5°C).

The brewery was founded in 1889 when the family business turned from a kōji shop to a liquor store. In 1944, the company was integrated into Hachinohe Shurui under a wartime corporate control order and subsequently carried out production and sales as Plant No. 5. Since 2007, the plant has been renamed the Hachinohe Shurui Gonnohe Factory (八戸酒類株式会社五戸工場).

Low-alcohol sake with beautiful acidity is attracting attention in the sake industry. Hachinohe Shurui, through the experience and research of its tōji over many years, has achieved a well-balanced sake with a clean aftertaste and a hint of sweetness at an alcohol content in the 7% range, thanks to the apple-like flavour and acidity derived from the yeast. It is the pride of Aomori Prefecture, the apple kingdom. The brewery has two leading brands, Jokkū (如空) and Yatsuru (八鶴). In recent years, it has received various awards, including a gold medal at the National New Sake Competition, attracting increasing attention.

The aroma of Ringo Pom-Pom is fruity, with subtle notes of chocolate. Malic acid yeast (Kyokai No. 77) produces an unexpected apple flavour. Upon tasting, it presents a mild and fruity entry, showcasing the juicy acidity commonly found in green apples and pears and a fruity sweetness reminiscent of compote. While not a typical sake, it offers a refreshing variation. Some drinkers might appreciate a slightly more robust apple flavour. Great for beginners or regulars courageous enough to venture off the beaten sake track.
