The sophisticated sweetness and elegant aromatics of Beni Satsuma are drawn out with Komaki Jozo's "Kodawari". Has a uniquely round and soft savor.

Located Satsuma county of Kagoshima prefecture, and established in 1909. Their motto is "Kodawari" and they feel free to pursue their "Kodawari" because Komaki Jozo is a family-run business. Koadawari is, roughly translated, the uncompromising pursuit of perfection.
