Sakura 29 represents the epitome of Japanese sake-brewing. Craftsmanship and nature come together harmoniously to provide an incomparable experience.
This masterpiece was painstakingly crafted by the brewmasters of the Takenoi brewery with masterful technique honed from over a century of tradition and excellence. To the artisans at Takenoi, quality is paramount. This is reflected in their commitment to producing only small-batch, hand-brewed sake.
Nothing but the finest ingredients are used in the making of Sakura 29. The highest grade (toku-tō) of Yamada-Nishiki rice is polished to an exceptionally pure 29%. The famed, pristine waters of the Yatsugatake mountains, ranked amongst the top one hundred water sources in Japan, imbue Sakura 29 with a signature soft sweetness. The cherry blossom yeast infuses Sakura 29 with a uniquely mellow profile and floral aroma, utilizing a technique exclusive to only thirty out of over a thousand Japanese breweries.
Sakura 29 is best served chilled. While it can also be paired with a wide variety of dishes to excellent effect, its quality, character and flavor are best savored when consumed on its own.
