Umenishiki “Junmai Daiginjo”
A gift from Ehime
From Ehime prefecture comes this carefully made Umenishiki “Junmai Daiginjo,” a locally loved and frequently gifted premium sake. Using the king of sake rice Yamadanishiki, and abundant natural waters from the Shikoku Mountains, the careful, low-temperature fermentation produces notes of banana and flowers. Try pairing it with fresh tofu, lightly seasoned broth, and dishes that honor the flavors of the ingredients. It’s recommended to serve it slightly chilled in a wine glass.

Umenishiki is made in Ehime prefecture in the Shikoku region.
Umenishiki Yamakawa was founded in 1872 by the Yamakawa family, who ran a rapeseed oil, miso and soy sauce business. Umenishiki became a nationally recognized brand after winning first prize at the official national sake appraisal back in 1934, and continues to win accolades today. They’re committed to making koji in the smallest batches, called “koji-buta,” regardless of whether it’s their premium sake or “futsushu” (table sake). Even after being purchased by Hakutsuru Brewing Company in 2016, the brewery continues to preserve the craft and legacy of sake making under the current sixth-generation president.Learn more
