Uses Dewasansan, a specially cultivated Yamagata prefecture brewer's rice grown by a member of the local Oe Sake Rice Study Group. It is a Junmai Ginjo-shu made in the bitter cold of January. After fermentation at a low temperature for a long period of time, it is bottled and pasteurized, and then stored and aged for more than 2 years at a low temperature. Unlike new sake, the aroma is moderate, and the taste also mellow and gentle. It becomes a mellow and sweetly fragrant sake, and at room temperature or slightly warmed, the umami spreads in the mouth. Relax and enjoy it with a glass of water.

Brewery Information

Chiyokotobuki Toraya

Brewery located in Tohoku

Minamimachi, Sagae-shi, Yamagata

Our company is said to have been founded in 1696 (9th year of the Genroku era) by Onuma Sozaemon, in what is the present-day city of Yamagata. The family fell on hard times at the end of the Tokugawa period, but during the time of of the eighth generation Onuma Yasukichi the fame of Kotobuki grew and they brewed 800,000 liters, a remarkable volume for that time. Two factories were set up in Yamagata, and in Sagae they took over Ishiyama Brewery, founded in the late Genroku era, expanded and remodeled, and operated it as the Sagae factory. This Sagae brewery became an independent branch at the beginning of the Taisho era and is the current Chiyokotobuki Toraya Co., Ltd. Since our foundation, and based on local, community-based brewing, we have put great time and effort into producing hand-made SAKE following the four conditions of the Isobe philosophy: "safe to eat", "no deception", "good taste", and "reasonably priced based on quality". Currently our focus is on brewing SAKE using only rice grown in Yamagata prefecture, based on the essence of local craft brewing. We are especially particular about the rice we use, and we have been working with two brewer's rice producing groups – Oe SAKE Rice Study Group and Toyokuni Farmers' Association – from cultivating the rice through to brewing the SAKE, in order to develop the most suitable rice for making high quality SAKE. In addition to brewing SAKE, we are developing brewing fermentation technology and a wide range of products, including shochu and liqueur, made using locally produced ingredients.
