All water used in our brewing process is from the well in our property that comes from Takeda River. As you can read in the Japanese comic book, Oishinbo, it is said, “It’s amazing how, once you take a sip, you can feel the richness of the taste in your mouth, and once you swallow it, it’s gone.” It’s so clear and is soft water that can be given to babies.
The rice used is famous Yamada-nishiki made in Hyogo, special Hyogo Kita Nishiki, and Tajima-goriki. Special care is needed when they are handled and they are generally not so famous as Sake rice yet. But we believe that they are inevitable elements to create specific taste in Sake.
It is important to us to keep it fresh. We want to bring our Sake to you fresh, so the whole process including shipping takes only about 2 months. Those people who tend to avoid Fresh Sake are probably not fans of the smell that is brought out in the aging/storing of Sake.
That’s why it’s important to keep it fresh.
The rice fermentation system cultivated over many years allows us to create non-alcoholic foods and cosmetics. Lots of attention is paid to rice fermentation now that it can produce many kinds of nutritive such as amino acid and vitamins. It can’t be wrong for a good lifestyle.
For one, our Sweet Sake Yogurt that is good for all people from children to older people. It’s a mixture of our non-alcoholic Amazake that is made sweet by rice fermentation and fresh yogurt made in Tamba. Though no sugar is used, it’s so sweet. This product was made in cooperation with Tamba Farming Association and is taking part in making the city grow bigger.
For another, Ama Koji and Shio Koji. Ama Koji is a sugar substitute made sweetened by the rice fermentation system. You can use it cooking instead of sugar or spread it on toast. Our Shio Koji is a bit different from other companies’. It’s richer because we use Sweet Sake. It can be used as dressing for salad.
“I have tried expensive cosmetics before, but they don’t seem to be totally for me.” “I want something that is really good for my skin in a long run instead of something with many kinds of ingredients that seems to work quickly but just for now.” For those women who think this way in their late 20′s to 40′s, we’ve come up with this soap. This soap was made with our rich nature in Tamba, no additives used, and it was only made possible because we are professional in rice fermentation.
