Utilizing Miyagi’s own umami-rich prefectural rice Manamusume, Urakasumi has crafted an award-winning “karakuchi” (dry) honjozo sake. While this brew won the Kan Sake Award 2021 champion trophy in the hot sake category, it’s enjoyable at any temperature. Delicate aromas of banana and white flowers fill each sip before ending in a clean dry finish — a perfect companion for everyday fare and elevated, elegant dinners alike.
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.”
