Suehiro “Densho” Yamahai Junmai
Simplicity at its best
The name “Densho” comes from the legacy of Suehiro Brewing Company being taught the secrets of the yamahai method from Kinichiro Kagi who discovered this process around the turn of the century. This sake boasts a creamy texture with ample umami and superbly balanced acidity that makes it so easy to drink we can’t get enough. Extremely food friendly, and recommended warm, on a flat ceramic vessel if you have one.

Suehiro Brewing Company
Founded at the end of Edo era in 1850, the traditional wooden storefront designated as historical heritage of the prefecture has been protected by “onigawara” (the roof ornament shaped as a demon). They hang a large, round decoration made of fresh cedar leaves to announce freshly brewed sake every year. The color of the ornament changes to brown as time goes by, indicating the age of the sake they brewed. The local Mount Seaburi emerged from an eruption 1.8 million years ago, and the water that now flows through its natural limestone is delicate as silk. The brewery still has five active wells where this water flows. They have 100 contract local farmers with whom brewers work closely.Learn more
