This is a sake with some complexity that shines both warm and chilled. It’s brewed using premium quality, locally produced Manamusume rice, which is then fermented at low temperatures. This, in combination with use of in-house yeast, makes for balanced flavor and enhanced umami. Serve chilled to experience a refreshing acidity, or warm it up to really bring forth the gentle sweetness. When warm, this sake really goes down smooth.
Urakasumi is made in
Founded in 1724, Saura has dedicated its sacred sake to the divinities of Shiogama Shrine, religious center of the Tohoku region. Brewmasters Sagoro Hirano and Juichi Hirano, who left behind their legendary Hirano method, are followed by current brewmasters Kunio Onodera, Toru Yamada and Isao Akama, who are winning many gold awards in competitions. Also famous as the birthplace of Association No. 12 yeast, they’ve asked us to please “enjoy a peaceful and pleasant time while drinking Urakasumi, as the name comes from an ancient poem that depicts the beauty of the arrival of spring in the Shiogama Bay, where the sake brewery is located.”
