Yaegaki started out as a sake company founded in the Banshu-Hayashida area of Hyogo Prefecture in 1666. The “Yaegaki” brand, established in 1881, was founded on the brewery’s distinctive and outstanding sake-brewing methods, handed down from one generation to the next through its 350-year history.

The name “Yaegaki” (八重垣) can be broken down into three characters: 八=eight, 重=layered or overlapping, 垣=fence or wall. This word was taken from the very first poem of the ancient Kojiki (古事記, literally “Records of Ancient Matters”), the oldest extant chronicle of Japanese history.

This famous poem records the words of the great deity Susanoo-no-Mikoto (スサノオノミコト), the Shinto god that pioneered the area now known as Himeji. It expresses his joy as he welcomes his newly wedded wife to their new palace. The word “yaegaki” appears in the poem in reference to the many layers of clouds (figuratively expressed as eight layers of walls) that surround their new palace, signifying the celebration of their marriage and Susanoo-no-Mikoto’s love for and protection of his new wife.

This fruity, dry Junmai Daiginjo has a delicate and brilliantly aromatic character.

The aroma of green apples and Asian pear with a hint of resin complements its smooth and refreshing taste.
