When you drink Tamanohikari, you drink perfection

Although from a reputable brewery from a very historic region, this is not your typical junmai daiginjo. Are you able to catch the humble expression of “ginjo-ka,” full of white flowers and a hint of anise? On the palate, it has a layered depth from the Omachi rice grown in Bizen-no-kuni in Okayama prefecture — the birthplace of this heirloom strain. This sake will give you a different impression with each sip.

Tamanohikari Brewing Company

Founded in 1673 in the historic Fushimi Region, Tamanohikari Brewing Company is known as the premium sake maker for junmai and ginjo types. They were the first not to waver to the addition of excessive distilled alcohol to survive through the second world war. They continue the same policy to make sake you will never get tired of, and will make your meal become even more enjoyable. They pay the utmost attention to their ingredients — the deep stable water source they are blessed with, how the rice is grown and their carefully crafted koji.
