Like a cool breeze

While sake is often thought of as a winter drink, Natsujun is brewed to be your go-to drink for hot summer days. Its clean, refreshing taste is perfect for enjoying in a shaded grove to escape the heat. By using Dewasansan sake rice, the brewers have crafted a pure, crisp sake with bursting flavor. Though it is a “light” sake, you can still expect to taste Shichida’s classic umami, which pairs wonderfully with summertime BBQ 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.
