Like biting into fresh citrus fruit

Saura has been creating quality sake since 1724, and even offered sacred sake to Shiogama Jinja, a prestigious shrine in northern Japan. The tradition of great taste continues with this sweet junmai. There is a sourness to the sweetness, much like biting into a juicy citrus fruit, like a tangerine. If you’d like more umami, try warming up this sake, and don’t forget to stop and smell this hypnotizing aroma.

Miyagi prefecture

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.”
