A bold attempt made by the brewery to break with tradition.
Takato of Nagano Prefecture, Japan is well-known as the one of best locations to view cherry blossoms in Japan. Since Takeda Shingen built the Takato castle in 1574, culture and arts flourished in this beautiful, historical city for more than 700 years.
The brewery, founded in 1866, has become a beloved sake of the southern Nagano prefecture region. They use the water of Mt. Senjo of the southern Japanese Alps and carefully select local ingredients for their brews, and enjoy a flexibility in creativity that can only come with local support.
Using the local sake rice of Nagano - then highly polished, this Junmai Daiginjo shows a round mouth feel, highly fragrant, rich, sweet, ripe fruits flavours with a hint of delicacy and a clean aftertaste.
