A foodie’s best friend

From a brewery in famously foodie Fukuoka Prefecture, this sake pairs easily with food and tastes great at any temperature. It is actually the current brewery owner’s favorite style of sake, and recommends serving warm. The scent is of clean citrus, spearmint and mineral quality. On the tongue is an elegant, dry pear flavor with floral hints. Overall light, modern, and easily enjoyed by beginners and experts alike.

Yamaguchi Brewing Company

The brewery’s founder saw nightingales flying from the historic Kitano Tenmangu Shrine to the garden where the brewery now lies, and there they drank and played in clean spring water. He was convinced to start brewing sake using such wondrous water, and founded the brewery in 1832. They use underground water from the famed Chikugo River and rice from Fukuoka prefecture to create beautifully smooth sake that pairs well with many types of cuisine. Being in a land known for its foodie culture, the brewers wish to make sake that is enjoyed and appreciated by food lovers the world over.
