The Murai Family has dedicated nearly 200 years to the production of premium sake, incorporating the finest ingredients into their award-winning products. The family has earned 59 consecutive Gold Medals for Brewing Excellence, which has not been achieved by any other producer in Japan. The Sakemaster, Yoshio Koizumi, has been awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award, thereby placing him in the top five brewers, winemakers, and distillers in all of Japan.

The figure on the label is the Nebuta Warrior - the essence of Japanese lore. Many theories suggest the origin of the Nebuta, but it is thought that the fiery warriors were crafted ages ago by General Tamuramaro who created the giant images of warriors from bamboo and paper to light up the night sky to scare off the rebels. Embraced as the symbol of the annual Nebuta Festival, held each August, the Murai Family is honored to be the only sake given authority to use the Nebuta Warrior image.

The brewing headquarters is also the home of Japan's largest "sugidama", or cedar ball, which symbolizes the company's commitment to becoming the country's best sake brewer. The green ball is made at the beginning of each brewing season, hung in front of the brewery, and when the green turns brown, the sake aging process is complete. This sake was created using this traditional method of aging.

This medium-dry, full-bodied sake displays earthy, herbal notes, a rich melon flavor, and a hint of tropical spice. Pair with spicy pork, fish, and chicken dishes, or experiment with light pastas and salads.

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.
