Shichida “Yamahai Umakuchi”

Saga Prefecture


Nuanced in all the right ways

Tenzan Brewing Company brings you this dazzling new yamahai brew made with their original lactic acid isolated with the help of Saga University to add to the Shichida line. This sake with some considerable body delivers substantial umami sweetness mixed with subtle cedar notes and an equally dry aftertaste. When warmed up you’ll find a touch of maple syrup, so don’t be afraid to experiment with different temperatures!

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.
