As fresh as forest air

“Taru sake” is sake stored in wooden vats that takes on a pleasant, woody aroma. In this case, Japanese cedar called Yoshinosugi from a sustainable forest in Nara is used. Traditionally used for celebrations and special occasions, taru sake is quite arduous to make today, but this one is bottled for everyday celebrations. Enjoy this mouthwatering sake and immerse yourself in its bright yet calming effect.

Choryo Brewing Company

Although the brewery was founded in Nara in 1979, their story starts in 1923 when founder Iida Teiichi, the seventh child in a sake brewing company, started a small retail shop near Osaka City. Now Iida Group owns many businesses including Choryo Brewing Company. Their passion is in preserving Japan’s cultural heritage, which you can see in how they’ve kept the tradition of taru sake. They opened Choryo Brew Park in the spring of 2022, so we encourage you to go visit and check out their delicious food and beverages yourself.
