Email me when available

Hearty autumn companion

This seasonal fall release from the legendary land of Seven Spears of Shizugatake doesn’t disappoint, with carefully handcrafted koji and traditional yeast fermentation producing solid structure and creaminess on the palate. Hearty roasted veggies and creamy, warm dishes would pair perfectly with the expanding pillowy texture. Let it warm on your tongue, and take a moment to enjoy the playful balance of umami, acidity and their signature dry bold finish.

Tomita Brewing Company

Tomita Brewing Company came into being in 1534, and has been brewing sake using the same groundwater source since! The company’s brand Shichi Hon Yari, meaning “seven spears,” is named for seven great warlords who fought in a major battle on Shizugatake, the mountain near the brewery. Now into its 15th generation, Tomita Brewing Company’s current president Yasunobu Tomita visited wineries and breweries in the United States and Europe before training in sake brewing. This has allowed him to understand the value of local commitment and just how special it is to have truly locally brewed sake.
