Every glass is a poem

This sake is named after a poetry compilation from the 13th century by Ono no Komachi. Like the poetry, this sake is deep and rich. The sake’s complexity matches the intricacies the poetess put in to her writing. The Yamadanishiki rice produces a delicate blend of savory and acidic. Give a nod to Ono no Komachi, depicted on the bottle, every time you have a glass.

Chiba prefecture

Nabedana’s ancestors started brewing sake in Narita, Chiba, by Naritasan Temple more than 320 years ago in the Edo period, the era of Tokugawa Shogunate. Their brewery, located in Kouzaki, 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.
