A juicy treat

An export-only, high-end sake. Everything related to its production is done in-house, from cultivating their yeast to milling their rice. It’s pasteurized just once before bottling to preserve its liveliness, and then it’s matured just enough to mellow the flavor. The aroma is very subtle, just enough to draw you in, and the flavor is a delight-white flower, pineapple-like juiciness and a dash of bitter.

Ryujin Brewing Company

At the time of the civil wars in 15th century, a warlord from this province found a source of water great for making sake and became a sake brewer. Ryujin’s underground water is very soft and feminine, lending to their brewers the power to draw out the hidden flavors in their rice. Their aim is to create flavorful, mellow, high quality sake that warms the heart upon drinking. They like to combine their traditional skills and methods with the brewer’s heart. To this end, they work hard to improve their skills every day to work towards the next challenge, and brew excellent beer in the off season.
