Simply purr-fect

“Tatenyan” is the mascot cat that wandered into the Tatenokawa Brewing Company, where they only make junmai daiginjo of the highest quality standards. Just like that energetic kitty, this sake is playful. From the initial flowery scent to the slight effervescence, Tatenokawa “Tatenyan” is bound to pick up your spirits. The juicy melon flavor has a clean, mineral finish, and can be enjoyed at any temperature.

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”) 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, whom they call 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.
