An ode to Kanazawa

Made from Kanazawa yeast and Gohyakumangoku rice cultivated locally, the brewers crafted this sake to be representative of their castle town. Like the serene cobblestone streets and graceful architecture of the city, this sake makes you feel centered. A faint aroma of butterscotch leads into flavors of banana and apple, with mushroom-like umami dancing underneath. A good sake to pair with seafood to bring out the best in both.

Yachiya Brewing Company

Yachiya Brewing Company

Ishikawa prefecture

Yachiya Brewing Company was founded way back in 1583 when Niemon Kamiyachiya moved to the castle town of Kanazawa to brew sake exclusively for General Toshiie Maeda. Of course their sake is now available for people around the world, but they have kept their old values. They hope to express the variety and heart of sake rice. To this end, they’ve established a committee of 15 farmers to research and cultivate local rice strains. These different rice strains find their home in the flavors of Yachiya Brewing Company’s sake. Truly a brewery that encompasses the history and culture of sake.
