Founded in 1743, Hakutsuru is one of the oldest saké producers in Japan and is located in the Nada district of Kobe, a leading saké production area known throughout Japan. Kobe, particularly its Nada District, is famous for being the hub of saké brewing. About 10% of all saké production in Japan is brewed in Nada because of its water sources, ideal climate cycles, and proximity to large ports in Kobe and Osaka. Among these various saké breweries stands Hakutsuru, the largest saké producer in Japan.
Hakutsuru benefits from excellent water sources including pristine spring water from Mt. Rokko, and the famous Miyamizu located in Nishinomiya. This, in addition to advanced brewing technologies, allows Hakutsuru to make a wide variety of excellent saké, from Futsu to delicate and exclusive Junmai Daiginjo.
Hakutsuru Nishiki Junmai Daiginjo Sake is a luxurious saké, mouth-filling and full of flavor, yet delicately refined. Enjoy the elegance of refreshing floral notes of jasmine and orange blossom and savor a hint of vanilla sweetness in the extra long finish.
