Sweet enough to make you blush

Named after the founder of Ozeki brewery, the Osakaya Chobei is a Daiginjo made from rice that has been polished by a whooping 50%. This helps create the delicate flavor you'll taste, reminiscent of lychee or melon. A pleasant umami essence combines with the sweetness to deliver a drink that leaves you flush, like a kiss on the cheek.

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.
