A blend of beauty

Urakasumi’s signature Association No. 12 yeast and locally grown Yamadanishiki and Kura no Hana rice make this an undeniably authentic junmai daiginjo brimming with regionality. Top that off with the collaboration with the master blender Regis Camus and the result is austere and refined. With an aroma like a bouquet of white flowers and notes of fresh apricot, HEAVENSAKE “Urakasumi” Junmai Daiginjo is a delight worth enjoying.

Saura

Founded in 1724, Saura has dedicated its sacred sake to the divinities of Shiogama Shrine, religious center of the Tohoku region. Brewmasters Sagoro Hirano and Juichi Hirano, who left behind their legendary Hirano method, are followed by current brewmasters Kunio Onodera, Toru Yamada and Isao Akama, who are winning many gold awards in competitions. Also famous as the birthplace of Association No. 12 yeast, they’ve asked us to please “enjoy a peaceful and pleasant time while drinking Urakasumi, as the name comes from an ancient poem that depicts the beauty of the arrival of spring in the Shiogama Bay, where the sake brewery is located.”
