Mellow out with Kuroushi

Kuroushi has a unique, mellow flavor and a satisfying thickness from being unfiltered and undiluted. Its curious mix of Persimmon-sweet and citrus-sour play out across the palate before fading into a gentle, lingering finish. The whole drink is wrapped up by a faint earthy tone, a quality of being pasteurized only once to retain freshness.

Nate Brewing Company

Their brand name “Kuroushi” comes from the rock shaped like a black cow that existed at the shore near the brewery. In 1866 Nate Brewing Company started to serve sake to the craftsmen in the small town of Kuroe famous for lacquerware craft and arts for over a thousand years. Even though their business flourished to include real estate and trading at one point, what remained after the war was their sake brewery. Since then, they’ve committed to their brewing business and maintained smaller, quality production to serve the people that love their products.
