Like floating on calm waters

“Sekirei” is the name for the birds that frequent the river outside the brewery. The brewers crafted this sake to embody the elegance and effortlessness in how these birds the river. We think they’ve hit their mark. An aroma like soft rain graces your senses, followed by the medium weight texture sporting delicate flavors of confectionery and soft rice powder. Each sip feels like floating calmly down river.

Yaoshin Brewing Company

The first generation founder remodeled their rice granary to a sake brewery in 1877 when they were also in the business of soy sauce, oil and ice. The brand name “Gangi” shares its name with the stepped pier where they received raw rice from upstream, and the Nishiki River is a large part of the brewery’s identity. Now in the fifth generation, they focus on quality junmai, and their sake is available in numerous countries overseas. They liken their brewing to carving a statue out of a single piece of wood because they aim to bring out the maximum potential of rice.
