A soft glow lighting your way

The label is an image of a night—light illuminating a dock, just like this sake illuminates your soul like a soft light. The brewers recommend enjoying this sake from a wide-mouthed glass or almost saucer-like vessel. “Hitotsubi” has a medium intensity aroma and texture with some light weight. Initial flavors of banana bran, like the top of a muffin, gives way to some umami and dried fruit notes.

Yaoshin Brewing Company

The first generation founder remodeled their rice granary to a sake brewery in 1877 when they were also in the business of soy sauce, oil and ice. The brand name “Gangi” shares its name with the stepped pier where they received raw rice from upstream, and the Nishiki River is a large part of the brewery’s identity. Now in the fifth generation, they focus on quality junmai, and their sake is available in numerous countries overseas. They liken their brewing to carving a statue out of a single piece of wood because they aim to bring out the maximum potential of rice.
