Sake that will make your eyes widen with delight

By using rich rice and soft water, Nagai has managed to produce a fine sake with a sweet creamy essence. The inspiration for the drink came from the flowers that bloom in Oze valley, where the sake is brewed. The brewers took the beauty of those yellow flowers and put it in a bottle. The light, delicate sweetness is enticing, and caters to beginners as well as seasoned sake drinkers.

Back in 1886, Shoji Nagai first fell in love with the quality of water there and started brewing sake purchasing woods along the river to preserve the nature and quality of the water for preparation. Their motto is to combine nature, culture and history of Kawaba village, passing down the philosophy and skills from the ancestors, which they call NAGANO style.
