The drink of heroes

Made with the heirloom rice Kumamoto Shinriki which was revitalized after being out of use for 50-100 years.

Shinriki literally means “Sacred Power” in Japanese and represents the bold, briny ocean flavors present in the sake.

Chiyonosono Brewing Company

In 1896, Chiyonosono Brewing Company was founded by a prominent rice merchant in Yamaga City which prospered during the Edo period, next to a trade highway. The name Chiyonosono is a reference to the Imperial Court and the garden of eternity, and instills the wish for eternal prosperity for the people. Today, they are particular about using Kumamoto yeast developed within the prefecture which isn’t overly expressive but has a nice balance of aroma and flavor. They aim for simple sake made from rice, with the right balance of brightness, depth and ease of drinking to be the perfect accompaniment to your meal.
