The start of something wonderful

With a name meaning “daybreak” this sake is the start of a new line of sake for Sasaichi Brewing Company. Their goal with this sake was to bring out the best possible flavor of the rice while also keeping the soft taste of the water used in brewing, and they nailed it. The crystalline, mineral texture boosts the sweet rice taste, and further sipping reveals undertones of peach or nectarine.

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.
