Delicious to the last drop

Akabu Brewing Company believes this sake represents their image best. Brewed using local Iwate sake rice called Ginginga and Iwate yeast, this junmai is juicy and brimming with umami. A medley of peach, strawberry and grapefruit notes adds a slight sweetness and lingering acidity to keep you coming back for more. This combination brought this brew a gold medal at the International Wine Challenge for both 2018 and 2019!

Akabu Brewing Company

First established in 1896, Akabu Brewing Company is located in Morioka City, Iwate prefecture. This land is known for its chilly weather, which is fortunately also fantastic for sake brewing. The brewers make sake to suit the times, and do so with passion, love and guts. They aim to brew sake that represents the spirit of Iwate without compromise, something that can be passed down and enjoyed for ages to come. The brewers are generally of a younger age, but never forget their past by fusing traditional techniques with the latest microbial theory to brew top tier sake.
