Gentle, yet powerful

Made by a brewery with one of the few female executives in the sake world, this sake is produced using the same method as for daiginjo sake. It’s pressed very gently so that only the best tasting sake is collected, then pasteurized as soon as it’s bottled to lock in ultimate freshness. A good combination of gentleness and strength, expect sweet rice confectionery and pillowy expansion on the palate.

Inaba Brewing Company

Originally founded in 1867 in the foothills of Mt. Tsukuba, this brewery sprang up due to a surplus of rice and high quality water. In 2000, the second daughter of the family, Nobuko Inaba, learned sake making to keep the tradition alive and they also switched to producing purely junmai sake. “Minanogawa” is their traditional brand named after their famed water source, and “Stella” was launched in 2000 with the concept of a starry night town. Inaba became president in 2010 and continues to push the boundaries of innovative sake brewing by investing in the resurrection of rice native to Ibaraki.
