Treat it like a delicate flower

“Kaze no Ichirin” means single flower in the wind, as this sake was named after the wild cosmos flowers along the Watarase River near the brewery. Enjoy the subtle notes of white flowers and cherry—they capture this by flash pasteurization to preserve the flavors until it is opened at your table. You may find some herbal gin and origami-like delicacy in it as we did.

Daiichi Brewing Company

Daiichi Brewing Company

Tochigi prefecture

Founded in 1673, Daiichi Brewing Company is the oldest brewery in Tochigi Prefecture which has endured many challenges over time. At the end of the 19th century the brand Kaika (開化) was born, coinciding with the westernization of Japan. In 1936, they changed the character to Kaika (開華) to express the elegance in their sake, and in 1998 they switched to only producing premium grade sake. They are both historic and innovative, incorporating newer brewing techniques, and unmistakenly loved dearly by locals, as you can find them holding outdoor festivals on brewery grounds every summer.
