A summertime classic
The summer sun draws us outdoors for picnics, barbecues and backyard parties, and what makes all of those even better? A bottle of Tengumai “Ryogin.” This sake is brewed with a summer spirit in mind. The sweet ginjo aroma is brimming with the scent of freshly sliced pear. The wonderful bouquet blends seamlessly into the soothing, juicy flavor that harmonizes with a pinch of sour to brighten any summertime fun.

Shata Brewing Company
Established in 1823, in the shadow of one of Japan’s largest volcanic mountains “Mt. Haku.” With the blessing of this dormant goddess (namely, her naturally filtered water) they brew exquisite sake. This brewery was established in 1823 by Shata Tauemon. He was so impressed by all the delicious sake he tasted during his long trip and he started a brewery of his own to make equally tasty sake in his hometown of Hakusan in Ishikawa Prefecture. Back then, the brewery was surrounded by a luxuriant forest where rustling leaves reminded him of dancing “Tengu”, a long-nose goblin of Japanese folklore, inspiring the name “Tengumai,” meaning “Tengu dance.”Learn more
