For the tart at heart

The castle town of Kanazawa is picturesque, with cobblestone streets, charming buildings, and plum trees! The brewers used local small and medium sized Kanazawa plums to craft this beautiful umeshu. The plums used are a bit more tart, so expect a healthy dose of tartness with undercurrents of sweetness. Drink on its own or get a little crazy with it and serve on the rocks or as a cocktail base.

Yachiya Brewing Company

Yachiya Brewing Company was founded way back in 1583 when Niemon Kamiyachiya moved to the castle town of Kanazawa to brew sake exclusively for General Toshiie Maeda. Of course their sake is now available for people around the world, but they have kept their old values. They hope to express the variety and heart of sake rice. To this end, they’ve established a committee of 15 farmers to research and cultivate local rice strains. These different rice strains find their home in the flavors of Yachiya Brewing Company’s sake. Truly a brewery that encompasses the history and culture of sake.
