Undiluted, rich, resilient

This Junmai is simply pressed from the rice without any water added. This makes for a more flavorful drink, and a touch higher alcohol content. The undiluted nectar washes the palate with a rich, ripe fruit taste and a pleasant dryness. Try chilled or on the rocks for a more satisfying experience.

In 1717, the owner of a rice shop started making sake as a side business. Now Sawanotsuru is one of the largest breweries in Nada region in Hyogo Prefecture, the most traditional and accredited region for sake production. It is now a national brand but at the same time hard to find at stores because of their limited production. Sawanotsuru is sincere and diligent about the quality control and its traditional brewing method only using natural ingredients. They will never sacrifice quality for lower price and higher production volume.
