Drink and be merry

The name “Akagisan” was inspired by a song in a play about Japan’s version of Robin Hood. Like the play’s hero, Chujiro Kunisada, or Britain’s Robin Hood, Akagisan Junmai Ginjo is a thief, but a thief of the heart. Brewed with the crystal clear underflow from Mt. Akagi, this dry sake is silky smooth and ends with a pristine finish. It pairs wonderfully with a wide array of foods, and might be your favorite part of the meal to be honest! The refreshingly dry apple and pear flavors will soon have you feeling like one of Robin Hood’s Merry men, so steal from the bottle and give to yourself with Akagisan Junmai Ginjo.

Kondo Brewing Company

Kondo Brewing Company

Gunma prefecture

Founded in 1875 by Kondo Kamekichi using water from the great Mt. Akagi, Akagisan has been brewing dry sake since the beginning. Their name was inspired by the mountain and by a song from a play about “Japan’s Robin Hood”, named Chujiro Kunisada. The water used is pure and perfect for brewing the dry sake that the region has become known for. Akagisan won the “Best Prize” at the 2006 Kanto Koshinetsu National Tax Service Sake Storage Conference. Despite a long time in the business, they manage to continue producing new and exciting sake.
