Unforgettable flavor, like freshly made sake

The fragrance from freshly made sake is said to be unforgettable, and now you can take a whiff for yourself when you open a bottle of Ozeki “Karatamba Tarekuchi.” A strong melon scent will grace your nose from the start, only to be followed up by a refreshing dryness. To enhance the aroma but retain the sharp taste, warm the sake gently. After a glass or two, you’ll begin to feel the serenity that comes from fine brewing.

The founder, Chobei Osakaya, began brewing sake in the Nada region in Hyogo in 1711. It is one of the oldest and largest breweries in Japan. The name “Ozeki” is the high-ranking title in sumo wrestling. The champion’s title “Yokozuna” wasn’t adopted to promise themselves ever-continuing efforts to aim higher in quality. Today it still is one of the leading companies to drive innovations in the industry.
