Description
 

Located near Tsuchizaki harbor in Akita City, one of the largest ports of northern Japan, Naba Shoten has been a local favorite since it was started in 1815. Since it is located in the city, it is one of the few breweries in Japan that still practices the ancient dekasegi system in which brewery workers leave their homes and families in the countryside and move into the brewery for the duration of the brewing season. The constant presence of these skilled workers ensures continual monitoring of brewing conditions, leading to wonderfully smooth and balanced sakes. The brewery also helped to revive the Yamahai brewing method, which requires more time and labor, but it results in the high acidity and earthy flavor that Naba Shoten sakes are known for.

Produced in the traditional Yamahai brewing method, this sake is tangy, rich, and mildly sweet with vibrant acidity. Incredibly food-friendly, it is hearty enough to stand up to fried seafood, grilled chicken, and more.

Due to the delicate nature of this product, we highly recommend upgrading to overnight shipping if you live outside of our immediate delivery area (New York City, Long Island, Southeastern NY, CT, DE, MD, Washington DC, RI and Eastern PA); ideally, sake should be outside of refrigeration for as short a time as possible. Please contact customer service at info@drinkupny.com if you have any questions concerning sake shipping.
