Perfect for a chill evening

“Yunagi” uses a rare yeast, Yamaguchi 9H, to produce a sake that evokes the feeling of relaxing by the Seto Inland Sea on a calm evening. With a bouquet like blooming jasmine flowers and an equally beautiful silken texture, “Yunagi” is sweet and light with some tannin and minerality that fades into light spice. They are proud to be the most serviced sake for All Nippon Airways’ first class fliers!

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.
