Sake that will make your eyes widen with delight

By using rich rice and soft water, Nagai has managed to produce a fine sake with a sweet creamy essence. The inspiration for the drink came from the flowers that bloom in Oze valley, where the sake is brewed. The brewers took the beauty of those yellow flowers and put it in a bottle. The light, delicate sweetness is enticing, and caters to beginners as well as seasoned sake drinkers.

Nagai Brewing Company

Nagai Brewing Company

Gunma prefecture

Nestled in the northernmost part of Gunma prefecture is Nagai Brewing Company. Nearby is Oze National Park, the most beautiful high-altitude marshlands in Japan. Snow and rain slowly filter through the highlands, taking decades to reach the springs at Kawaba, a small village with a little over 3,000 in population. Back in 1886, Shoji Nagai first fell in love with the quality of water there and started brewing sake. Today, the brewing company aims to combine the nature, culture and history of Kawaba village, and to pass down their ancestors’ philosophy and skills, which they call Nagai style.
