Enjoyable glass after glass

This locally loved sake will easily become a regular in your selection. The nose is like a rice field during harvest — calm, clean and magical. The flavor consists of balanced rice sweetness with some white and black pepper spice hidden in it. After the initial flavor sinks in, a refreshing umami lingers on the tongue. A sensational drink from the first sip to the last drop that deserves to be shared.

Nate Brewing Company

Their brand name “Kuroushi” comes from the rock shaped like a black cow that existed at the shore near the brewery. In 1866 Nate Brewing Company started to serve sake to the craftsmen in the small town of Kuroe famous for lacquerware craft and arts for over a thousand years. Even though their business flourished to include real estate and trading at one point, what remained after the war was their sake brewery. Since then, they’ve committed to their brewing business and maintained smaller, quality production to serve the people that love their products.
