Junmai Chiyonosono “Shared Promise” Junmai Sake
Values listed are at the time of production.
Chiyonosono is brewed in Kumamoto Prefecture in the Kyushu region.
Known as the “Junmai” expert, Chiyonosono was the first brewery to stop adding distilled alcohol to its sake after the rice shortages of World War II, paving the way for the popular premium “Junmai” category. They are located close to where iconic yeast #9 was originally isolated. Although Kumamoto is more known for shochu (Japanese traditional distilled alcohol) over sake due to warmer climate and its drinking culture, the historical importance of Chiyonosono pertaining to modern sake brewing keeps them motivated and committed to making premium sake.
