Tentaka “Hawk in the Heavens”

Tochigi Prefecture


A barbecue's best friend

high acid, umami-rich sake achieved through heavy application of koji-kin and extended maturation period of 18 months. A go-to sake for barbeque, this rustic, high acid sake is a great representation of traditional Junmai style that you would find in Izakayas throughout Japan. The brewery name, Tentaka, translates to “hawk in the heavens,” a prosperous Japanese symbol that is thought to bring good fortune to the brewery.

Tentaka Brewing Company

Tentaka Brewing Company

Tochigi Prefecture

Brewed in a landlocked region, Tentaka sake is locally treasured with only a small amount of sake leaving the prefecture. It celebrates the local flavors of rustic, savory, and meaty foods by brewing rich sake with high acidity. President Ozaki’s passion for the environment has led the brewery to use local ingredients, to reuse production byproducts, and to get Organic Certification in Japan, the US, and the European Union—one of only two breweries with triple certification.
