Like a cool breeze

While sake is often thought of as a winter drink, Natsujun is brewed to be your go-to drink for hot summer days. Its clean, refreshing taste is perfect for enjoying in a shaded grove to escape the heat. By using Dewasansan sake rice, the brewers have crafted a pure, crisp sake with bursting flavor. Though it is a “light” sake, you can still expect to taste Shichida’s classic umami, which pairs wonderfully with summertime BBQ dishes.

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.
