An award winning sake with the kick of green apple and the sweetness of honey

Tenzan Brewery has been producing world-class sake since the 1800s, and the Shichida is no different. This calming Junmai graces your tongue with a smooth combination of honey and green apple. The mild acidity is rounded out by the sweetness to create medium dry sake to die for. In fact, the Shichida won the gold medal in last year’s Joy of Sake event. Pair this gold medalist with any white fish to dine like a champion, and be sure to include your friends. Serve this one cold to amplify its flavor.

Tenzan Brewing Company

Tenzan Brewing Company

Saga Prefecture

Around the time when Japan was starting to trade for the first time with US in the late 1800, Toshizo and Tsuki Shichida started their rice-milling business. When a neighboring Sake brewery went bankrupt and asked them to buy the equipment, the Shichidas were too nice to say "no" and that's the beginning of this prestigious brewery. Their passion for quality lead to establishing local university specializing in agriculture, developing a rare type of rice "Omachi" at the time. Tenzan takes pride in their attitude towards the rice they use and communicates closely with contracted farmers several times a year.
