Sharing is caring, especially with sake

A commitment from the brewery to make premium sake despite agricultural hardships like those of WWII. Until this sake came along in the 1960’s, all sake had distilled alcohol added to it due to rice shortages and war rationing. After the war, Chiyonosono crafted the first junmai sake (brewed without distilled alcohol nor additives of any kind) and celebrated by sharing it from a large, red lacquered sake cup called a Shuhai. This is a sake for saison beer lovers, delicate orange blossom and spice with a cereal gran finish

Chiyonosono Brewing Company

Chiyonosono Brewing Company

Kumamoto Prefecture

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.
