Sake lover Dave Grohl has teamed up with maker Tatenokawa who exclusively makes premium junmai daiginjo. To commemorate Foo Fighters’ 10th album Medicine at Midnight, “Hansho” (midnight) was brewed listening to their music while it fermented at a very low temperature in their brewery built in 1832. Blue expresses the band’s pop side by the expressive aroma and a delicate, fresh sweetness in the flavor, using local Dewasansan sake rice.
Tatenokawa Brewing Company
Who would have thought that a sake brewery founded in 1832 would develop a cutting edge identity hundreds of years later? Tatenokawa’s ambition (achieving 1% rice polishing ratio) and global friendships (Foo Fighters and “Phoenix”Phoenix) has gained much attention in the last two decades to go along with a deep respect for their traditional methods and unwavering quality. They even have a playful brand honoring a tabby cat that wandered into their brewery called Tatenyan. They are one of the few breweries who that only produce junmai daiginjo today, reaching fans globally with products that will ultimately impress you ultimately with their delicious flavor.
