Sake Set – A Yamagata Sake Sampler

Sake Set – A Yamagata Sake Sampler

So have you booked your flight to Japan yet? Not yet? Okay we have a little something for you to make your wait a little less painful. How would you like to visit Yamagata Prefecture sitting at your kitchen table? Because we are bringing Yamagata to you! 

Say hello to a “Taste of Yamagata” in a single flight of awesomeness. You’ve heard of breweries doing rice flights where the only different feature is the rice varietal in sakes all made the same way? Well, one of the first breweries to do these deep dive brews was the Yamagata brewery called Takenotsuyu Sakagura. And many of you who have attended SAKE DAY know the brewery owner Mr. Masao Aisawa, who always brings his best for SAKE DAY. (And YES he will be at SAKE DAY '22 so get your tickets.)

I first tasted this set at his brewery 12 years ago, and at long last they are now available for you to play with and enjoy here. Some of the rice varietals are so new that I haven’t even heard of them, others are old-school Yamagata, and others still are old Yamagata-grown classic varietals like Kameno O. 

The Hakuro Suishu set includes 6 different brews:

  • Kameno O Junmai Ginjo
  • Dewa Kiraly Junmai Ginjo Genshu
  • Kairyo Shinko Junmai Ginjo Genshu
  • Dewano Sato Junmai Ginjo
  • Miyamanishiki Junmai Ginjo Genshu
  • Fairy Junmai Ginjo Genshu

It truly is an amazing way to taste a collection of Yamagata essence sake that is the way Yamagata sake is prototypically made. You literally capture the soul of Yamagata sake making in a really cool looking collection of bottles. 

We are selling these brews as a complete collection only because that's the way they should be approached. 

Please enjoy this sake experience and then you can meet and discuss these brews with the owner of the brewery at SAKE DAY’22 to complete your at home visit to Yamagata Prefecture.
