New standard for next generation sake

This fresh new daiginjo bursting with notes of white flowers, juicy guava and bright aloe acidity has the perfect balance of sweetness with a smidget of adult shibumi (astringency) and citrus in the aftertaste. Would you have guessed this came from the brewing team with one of the youngest average ages? Also the 2020 International Wine Challenge winner of Brewery of the Year. A must try.

Heiwa Brewing Company

1928 is when a sake-loving gentleman who married into the family established the brewery where it was originally a temple. After the hiatus during World War II, the company was renamed “Heiwa” meaning peace and harmony. When the current fourth generation owner Norimasa Yamamoto came back from working in Tokyo in 2004, he switched the brewery’s focus from mass-produced sake to carefully made premium sake. The KID line is intended to express the local nature, including their pristine water. And yes, they want to nurture both their sake and young talents as if you would nurture your own kid.
