Saura

Miyagi prefecture

Founded in 1724, Saura has dedicated its sacred sake to the divinities of Shiogama Shrine, religious center of the Tohoku region. Brewmasters Sagoro Hirano and Juichi Hirano, who left behind their legendary Hirano method, are followed by current brewmasters Kunio Onodera, Toru Yamada and Isao Akama, who are winning many gold awards in competitions. Also famous as the birthplace of Association No. 12 yeast, they’ve asked us to please “enjoy a peaceful and pleasant time while drinking Urakasumi, as the name comes from an ancient poem that depicts the beauty of the arrival of spring in the Shiogama Bay, where the sake brewery is located.”
