Summertime brings with it glorious sunshine, feelings of inner warmth, and this sensational seasonal sake! Gokyo “Junmai” Nama is the perfect summer brew, made with both Yamadanishiki and Nihonbare rice grown in Yamaguchi prefecture. These rice strains, together with Association No. 1801 and 9E yeast, deliver a balanced, enlivening acidity like that of lychee or fresh-squeezed lemonade. Serve cold on a summer day for ultimate satisfaction.

Established in 1871 in the Yamaguchi prefecture, Sakai Brewing Company lives by its core value, “Do simple things thoroughly to make good sake.” From the growing of rice to the brewing process itself, the brewery is dedicated to empowering the local people. They contract their rice from local farmers, hire locals, and even hold annual events for children in the area to learn about sustainability and celebrate the planting and harvesting of rice. Their staple brand “Gokyo,” meaning “five bridges,” is named after the five arched bridges connecting across the Nishiki River.
