Nostalgia in a bottle

The very fine sediments in this bottle are hand pressed, keeping a very fine texture. True to the regional style it finishes dry, and is incredibly food friendly. They’ve not submitted this to any competitions — this is a product they created to please the locals, with a bit of nostalgia towards “doburoku,” a more ancient brew. Recommended in a “guinomi,” a slightly larger ceramic cup to slow down your meal and to savor every sip.

Kodama Brewing Company

Founded in 1879 as a soy sauce and miso producer, Kodama Brewing Company started brewing sake in 1913. They are one of the few sake breweries in Japan that is still producing both miso and soy sauce today. “Tradition and Innovation from Akita” is their motto, and their impressive leadership and achievements throughout their history are evident in their numerous innovations and accolades — the invention of the new modified “Akita Kimoto Method” being one of them. Low-temperature fermentation utilizing the colder climate creates aromatic sake with smooth texture and complexity that is both nostalgic and refined.
