Like biting into fresh citrus fruit
Saura has been creating quality sake since 1724, and even offered sacred sake to Shiogama Jinja, a prestigious shrine in northern Japan. The tradition of great taste continues with this sweet junmai. There is a sourness to the sweetness, much like biting into a juicy citrus fruit, like a tangerine. If you’d like more umami, try warming up this sake, and don’t forget to stop and smell this hypnotizing aroma.

Located 180 miles north of Tokyo, Saura was founded in 1724 originally to serve sake to the gods of Shiogama Shrine, a national heritage with over 1000 years of history. Saura is very particular about including regional characteristics in their sake making, using locally-produced rice in Miyagi Prefecture, which is famous for high-quality table rice including Sasanishiki and Hitomebore brand. It is also their primary focus as a brewery located in the coastal region with one of the largest fish markets to make sake that pairs well with local seafood such as oysters and tuna.
