Ceremoniously succulent

The name Matsu no Midori was given to this sake by the master of tea ceremony at Omotesenke, a traditional school of tea ceremony. Like fine-grained Japanese paper, this sake is smooth and sensual. The aroma is a bountiful mix of yellow flowers. One sip and you’ll be swimming in sweet rice flavors that dissolve into a hint of mushroom umami which can only be defined as amazing.

Yamamoto Honke

Yamamoto Honke

Kyoto prefecture

Over 300 years ago, Yamamoto Honke established their brewery in this old capital city Kyoto and started to brew finest sake in the area. Burned to the ground during the modern Japan’s most important battle of “Fushimi Toba” which resulted in the defeat of the last Shogun’s armies, the brewery was quickly rebuilt by the support of locals in the same year. They use one of the best natural waters in Japan which according to the myth, magically appeared a long time ago when a wizard with white chrysanthemums helped the people suffering from a draught. The calligraphy for the “Shinsei” brand was given by a famous artist Tessai Tomioka as a wedding gift for the eighth generation Genbee Yamamoto.
