Imagine stepping into a rice field on a summer afternoon, where one of the top quality Yamadanishiki is grown. This sake is full bodied as expected for a junmai from Saga Prefecture, with a vegetal note and hint of sweet rice that lifts and expands on your palate. Enjoy it, even after it cools down, as it will comfort you with kindness like taking a nice warm bath.
Azumaichi is brewed in Saga Prefecture in the Kyushu region.
Gochoda Brewing Company
Gochoda Brewing Company was founded in 1922 by a branch family to the Setoh family sake brewery, formerly with 350 years history in Saga Prefecture. They are one of the first growers of Yamadanishiki rice in Saga Prefecture, and take pride in growing this king of sake rice around their brewery. They value making everything by hand, and incorporate machinery and original wood and bamboo tools. Their motto is sake brewing starts with rice growing, and their philosophy is “local rice, local people and brewing traditions that become one to produce delicious sake.”
