This sake keeps it local. Brewed using local rice, in-house cultivated yeast and crystalline water from the nearby Chikugo River, Niwa no Uguisu “50” is an easy drinking sake that shines as an aperitif, but has its place at the table with the main course. The brilliant floral aroma is backed by an exquisite fine texture and dry pear taste. White wine drinkers will find this sake up their alley.
Niwa no Uguisu is brewed in Fukuoka Prefecture in the Kyushu region.
Yamaguchi Brewing Company
The brewery’s founder saw nightingales flying from the historic Kitano Tenmangu Shrine to the garden where the brewery now lies, and there they drank and played in clean spring water. He was convinced to start brewing sake using such wondrous water, and founded the brewery in 1832. They use underground water from the famed Chikugo River and rice from Fukuoka Prefecture to create beautifully smooth sake that pairs well with many types of cuisine. Being in a land known for its foodie culture, the brewers wish to make sake that is enjoyed and appreciated by food lovers the world over.
