Powerful water god descends upon us
“Suijin” means water god and this sake is powerfully dry and smooth, like a water dragon coursing through a river. Made with locally sourced rice grown in Iwate, it’s fermented to the max resulting in a slightly higher alcohol level. The soft texture is enhanced when warmed, and it’s full of refreshing dryness when chilled. Spend enough time with it and you’ll discover some hidden fruity notes, too.

Asabiraki is made in Iwate prefecture in the Tohoku region.
Founded by a seventh-generation samurai turned merchant in 1871, the name Asabiraki comes from an ancient poem depicting an early morning boat journey symbolizing a new start. Their innumerable accolades are credited to Masahiko Fujio, their brewmaster since 1984. Preserving the skills of the Nanbu Toji Guild rooted in the region known for “pretty” sake with no off-flavors, his motto is “Always stick to the basics.” He has said, “Sake brewing is agriculture. We must not spare time and effort.” He’s also helped develop the prefectural sake rice called Ginginga, which is featured in some of Asabiraki’s products.Learn more
