Bound to bring good cheer

This sake is highly acclaimed around the world for its enthralling aroma, like that of violets. The floral scent is a perfect segue into the light peach flavor that goes over silky on the palate. The deep flavor lends itself to pairing with seafood, and also works wonderfully as an aperitif, never failing to satisfy. If you're looking for a way to celebrate, this is it!

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.
