A testament to the depth of sake

The team at Tatenokawa has pushed the limit of sake by polishing the rice to an astonishing 18%, lower than anywhere else in Japan. The Tatenokawa is a world-class sake with marvelous aromatics and impressive flavors. The silky structure plays out sweetly on your tongue, especially when chilled, although we suggest you experiment with temperature to find what suits you best. A rare gem and the height of luxury, this is a one-of-a-kind must try.

Tatenokawa Brewing Company

Yamagata Prefecture

Tatenokawa represents lightness and transparency of a clean river. The 180 years of history never interfere with their continuous challenge to achieve the highest quality. It was the first sake brewery in Yamagata that decided to brew exclusively “Junmai Daiginjo” class sake and they continue to do so while providing their high quality sake at affordable prices. Nearly all the rice they use for production is locally grown “Miyamanishiki” and “Dewasansan”. In 2014, ANA International picked this sake for their First Class and Business Class sake.
