Start the night with a Funaguchi

Prepare yourself for an experience when you open up a cold Funaguchi. With a rich taste and and honey tone, it's no wonder this sake has held constant popularity in Japan. Not being subjected to pasteurization or blending makes this sake viscous, and gives it a strong, full-bodied flavor to match its slightly higher than average alcohol content. Drink to quench your thirst as you sit pool-side, or as the first toast of a great night.

Kikusui Brewing Company

Kikusui Brewing Company

Niigata Prefecture

With 130 years of history on their shoulders, the Kikusui Sake Company of Niigata prefecture built themselves up from the bottom. The name "Kikusui" is a reference to a Noh theatre play, wherein the dew (Sui) from the petals of chrysanthemums (Kiku) grant eternal life. In 2004 they established the Kikusui Sake Research Institute in an effort to both raise the bar on the quality of their offerings and wrestle with concepts such as enjoyment of sake, and sake culture. They are proud to produce "Funaguchi" - Japan's first commercially available Nama (unpasteurized) sake.
