Two strains, one delicious sake

The two different sake rice used compliment each other and are allowed to shine when combined with the super pure water from the snowmelt of Mt. Fuji and their proprietary yeast. This sake has notes of fresh water that play along with an underlying sweetness from the rice, true to their belief that both the water and rice should be at the forefront of sake flavor.

Sasaichi Brewing Company

First founded in 1661, the brewery’s name can be broken down into two parts: Sasa, referring to sake, and ichi, a character meaning one or “the best.” This represents the brewery’s aim to be at the top of the highest peak for traditional sake. Based on Mt. Fuji, Sasaichi uses the mountain’s snowmelt as the water for their sake. Because this water is so delicate and recognizable, the brewers are committed to complimenting this water using only the best rice. Their sake balances aroma and taste into refined flavors that go hand-in-hand with many types of cuisine.
