The autumn leaves on the label represent the best time to enjoy this seasonal brew. Made with 100% locally produced Sasanishiki rice, which is also used for sushi. The rice is matured through the season to develop aroma and flavor. On the nose is a subtle savory note harmonized with scents of melon and apple. The flavor is mild, but juicy with a soft texture that’ll leave you satisfied.
Urakasumi is made in
Founded in 1724, Saura has dedicated its sacred sake to the divinities of Shiogama Shrine, religious center of the Tohoku region. Brewmasters Sagoro Hirano and Juichi Hirano, who left behind their legendary Hirano method, are followed by current brewmasters Kunio Onodera, Toru Yamada and Isao Akama, who are winning many gold awards in competitions. Also famous as the birthplace of Association No. 12 yeast, they’ve asked us to please “enjoy a peaceful and pleasant time while drinking Urakasumi as the name comes from an ancient poem that depicts the beauty of the arrival of spring in the Shiogama bay, where the sake brewery is located.”
