Find your center with Tokusei Gold

Kamotsuru's Signature Blend is the original gold-flaked Daiginjo sake. The two edible, gold flake Sakura blossoms in each bottle are meant to represent two cranes who’ve mated for life. The gold isn’t the only thing that sets this sake apart from the rest. From its strawberry, banana nose, to its fresh, tropical flavor, Tokusei Gold brightens the heart. Like taking in a deep breath from the top of Mt. Misen, this brew will help you find your center. Crisp, light, classic

Kamotsuru Brewing Company

Kamo refers to the location, and is also a pun on brewing (“kamosu”). It’s combined with “tsuru” (crane) for good fortune. Kamotsuru was founded in 1873 in Saijo, Hiroshima, which is known as one of the top three locations for great quality sake. Their signature soft water source is from the Kamo Mountains, which has seeped into the ground over time. Their campus is a collection of striking white-walled buildings—a backdrop for movies in the modern day. Currently employing four brewmasters, they are the makers of the first daiginjo sake, and continue to grace us with their classic, elegant creations.
