Like kindness in a glass

Shichida's challenge to disproof the notion that lower numbers in rice polishing is always better. With the least amount of polishing, Shichida is still able to brew this high quality full-body, engaging sake from start to finish. Its brown sugary nose is followed by an elegant sweetness, like figs or dried fruit. The finish balances it out with a refreshing smoothness. Everyone knows that sweet and savory pair perfectly, so try using this sake as a compliment to savory, heavy dishes.

Tenzan Brewing Company

Tenzan Brewing Company was founded in 1875 when a husband and wife team with a flour and noodle business purchased a brewery that was going under. Currently the sixth-generation president Kensuke Shichida constantly challenges them to evolve together with the current trend of sake. That said, their focus from the beginning has been to maximize the quality of their sake using the natural bounty that Ogi city provides. It is really fun to watch their collaboration with the tightknit brewing community, and Shichida’s leadership in Japan — and also internationally — is worthy of note.
