With juicy melon on the nose and packed with full, expressive flavor, it’s not like any other junmai, yet with the solid structure that is unmistakingly junmai… once you try it, it’s sure to become one of the staple products you will come back to.

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.
