Crafted by a small brewery in a little town called Kinomoto, Shichi Hon Yari Shizuku is made with a local rice called Tamazakae. The rice is polished way down and then fermented even slower than normal and collected drop by drop after fermentation. The result is a smokey, dry sake that is the perfect match for a steak dinner or some stuffed pork chops. Because the brewers don’t press the sake, only a small amount of sake is gleaned from each batch, making availability limited.
Shichi Hon Yari is made in
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.
