A blushing beauty
A reimagination of one of Japan’s most drinkable sake. This beefed-up version has a nose rich with the scent of plums, cherries and raisins, and a bolder, richer, drier body. Carefully aging this sake for over a year brings out the subtle dry fruit flavor. We love this sake so much, we special order it in a red mini bottle for our subscribers from time to time.

Shirataki Brewing Company
Shirataki Brewing Company was founded in 1855 in Yuzawa, on a historic road that connects Echigo (current day Niigata prefecture) to Edo (current day Tokyo). Niigata is known as the prefecture with the most sake breweries, and is blessed with pure snowmelt water from the mountains, cold clean air suited for ginjo sake making, and an abundance of rice fields. The current brewmaster Mr. Matsumoto learned not only the skill but also the heart of sake making from prior brewmaster Mr. Yamaguchi. They pull very soft water from three different wells — which is essential to their clean style — while incorporating various new technologies.Learn more
