Oyama “Hiyaoroshi”

Oyama “Hiyaoroshi”

Yamagata Prefecture


Made with sake sense

This seasonal sake is brewed without any computerization. The brewers use their knowledge, experience and sake senses to feel the life of the fermented rice and decide when it’s just right. Combined with the all in-house rice polishing, this sake is always a treat. Light and smooth with pear and ripe mango scent, it delivers a solid balance of juiciness and crisp acidity. Goes great with dumplings or gyoza.

Kato Kahachiro Brewing Company

Kato Kahachiro Brewing Company

Yamagata Prefecture

Founded in 1872 in Oyama, an area admired as being “Little Nada.” Nada is a famous region for sake brewing. The brewing company has a history that traces back to the children of the warlord Kato Kiyomasa. The children represented a number of breweries in the region including this one. As the generations passed, the brewery left that representation behind and now is all about creating harmony with people through sake. They use no computerization in their brewing process, preferring to use their natural senses to decide when each process is at the perfect place.
