Fresh as snow

The minimalist white bottle represents the unique snow-chilling method used in this sake’s brewing. “Yukimuro” is aged for three years in an insulated room next to huge mounds of frigid, mountain snow. This traditional and environmentally-friendly technique adds a smoother, rounder feeling to the already creamy flavor, which is sweetened by hints of pear. Feel the snowy freshness of the slopes anytime with a few sips of “Yukimuro.”

Hakkaisan Brewery Company

Hakkaisan Brewery Company was founded in 1922 in the foothills of Mount Hakkai, in an area with snow accumulating over 10 feet at times. The snowmelt water is naturally filtered by the mountain, providing water for the rice fields and for the elegant sake they produce. Their signature Niigata style is known as “tanrei karakuchi,” which is crisp, clean and dry, achieved by slow, low-temperature fermentation. They only use handmade “koji” and produce in small batches, and their guiding principle is to produce sake of the highest quality that pairs well with food.
