Sake that tells a story

Nito means two hares, and staying true to their company motto of chasing after two unattainable qualities, this sake uses two kinds of rice, Omachi and Yamadanishiki, to achieve a balance of flavors that each tell their own tale. The slightly hazy sake holds a juicy apple aroma that follows on the palate, but fades to an almost spicy dry. The brewers achieved their goal and “caught two hares.”

Maruishi Brewing Company

If ever there was a brewery to represent the idea that great things can come in small packages, Maruishi Brewing Company is it. The brewery consists of just four people brewing sake with their heart, soul and happiness. The brewery has been around since 1690, and their brand Nito meaning “two hares” goes after two different flavor profiles often thought unattainable in one sake. With access to the magnificent water of the Yahagi River and carefully sourced rice from all over the country, they may be small, but they are mighty.
