Every glass is a poem

This sake is named for a type of Japanese poetry compilation, which consists of 100 poems by 100 different poets. Like poetry, this sake is deep and rich. Its refreshing aroma pulls you in like a good stanza, and its moderate acidity balances with the rich flavor like an intricate rhyme. The smooth finish brings the perfect conclusion to your every sip. Try pairing this sake with seafood.

Nabedana’s ancestors started brewing sake in Narita, Chiba, by Naritasan Temple more than 320 years ago in the Edo period (1603-1868) during the era of the Tokugawa Shogunate. Their brewery, located in Kozaki, Chiba, has access to an abundance of high-quality water and sake rice. For the last few decades they have been brewing their signature brand, Jinyu, using the best ingredients from the region, but their legacy of brewing the finest sake has been a family tradition for more than three centuries! Their brewing motto, “Never compromise,” has been passed down to more than 19 generations.
