Sweet and tart delight

The brewery maximizes the potential of the ume fruit, even using the pulp to make this sake cloudy. A little goes a long way for this sweet and tart sake-based treat, so enjoy it on the rocks, cut with soda or straight, either chilled or at room temperature. The maker recommends it with Doritos, potato chips and other salty snacks. Available in limited quantities.

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.
