Junmai staple from beautiful Saga

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

Tenzan Brewing Company was founded in 1875 when a husband and wife team with a flour and noodle business purchased a brewery that was going under. Currently the sixth generation brewery owner Kensuke Shichida constantly challenges themselves to evolve together with the current trend of sake. That said, their focus from the beginning has been to maximize quality of their sake using the natural bounty that the Ogi City provides. It is really fun to watch the collaboration they do within the tight knit brewing community—and Mr. Shichida’s leadership in Japan and also internationally is worthy of note.
