Gin-lovers rejoice, your go-to sake awaits

Bright and refreshing, this sake is the perfect choice for daytime drinking and is the brewery employees’ drink of choice. The juniper botanicals and cucumber notes make it the perfect gin lover’s sake. It is named after the brewery founder who fought many battles near the ruins of Takatenjin Castle. It is technically milled to ginjo level but reined in by flavors and aromas to allow more easy drinking.
