This sake delivers a delightful dash of citrus with its 10% yuzu juice. The yuzu’s enlivening aroma and vibrant acidity bring a pleasant citrus kick without any bitterness. This is done through a combination of straining to remove the bitter oil from the yuzu, and a low-temperature pasteurization method usually used for high-end sake. Tsukasabotan “Yuzu” makes for a delicious aperitif and pairs with dishes containing squeezed citrus fruit.
Tsukasabotan is made in
Tsukasabotan Brewing Company
Founded in 1603 in the Tosa region, Tsukasabotan Brewing Company brews using subsoil water from the Niyodo River, a beautifully crystalline river that is well known in Japan. Ancient legend has it that sake brewed using this water was used as an offering to the gods. Throughout its long history, quality sake is something this brewery has always been about. When a nationwide rice shortage struck during World War II, Tsukasabotan chose to maintain quality by lowering production volume, a move that was well received and helped grow the company into a nationally renowned brand.
