Hakkaisan Seishu (清酒 八海山)

Hakkaisan Seishu (清酒 八海山) is made of Gohuyakumangoku and Koshiibuki rice varieties that are milled down to 60%. Classified as seishu (清酒, regular sake, also called futsushu), it is Hakkaisan's "entry-level sake", junior to the brewery's Tokubetsu Honjozo and produced under the motto いい酒をより多くの人に ("quality sake to as many people as possible"). It is made slowly and carefully through low-temperature fermentation and has a light, refreshing taste that can be paired with all kinds of food.

Hakkaisan Brewery was founded in Minami-Uonuma, Niigata, one of Japan's premier and most famous sake brewing regions, in 1922. The brewery derives its name from Mount Hakkai (八海山), a sacred mountain that is part of the Echigo Sanzan (越後三山) mountain range, the spring of the clear waters of the Haikkaisan river system. Hakkaisan represents the local sake tradition in Niigata and produces sake, shochu, plum brandy, beer (Rydeen Beer), whisky and mirin (cooking sake). In 2013, Timothy Sullivan, the founder of Urban Sake, was appointed brand ambassador of Hakkaisan.

Hakkaisan's Seishu is a regular sake (futsushu), an "entry-level" sake, as the brewery calls it. It is a "deluxe" seishu, as regular sake isn't typically milled to 60%. This affordable sake is dry and mild, with a pleasant alcohol flavour and a slightly sharp finish. Best at room temperature or slightly chilled.
