While Niigata is famous for its Tanrei-Karakuchi style of sake, characterized by its light, elegant, and dry profile, we aim to create Tanrei-Umakuchi, preserving the pure umami of sake rice. This high-quality pure rice sake stands out with a unique character. The rice is polished to 55% of its original size and undergoes fermentation without the addition of brewer’s alcohol, resulting in a full-bodied yet mild flavor.

With a subtle aroma and a distinct umami note, it pairs beautifully with grilled steaks and other rich, meaty dishes, making it a versatile and exquisite choice whether served chilled or just above room temperature.
