    Tasting Notes: In the history of sake, no brewery has ever been able to polish rice down to 1% before. Some people might say, "Do we really need to do this?" The answer of the 6th generation brewer, Jumpei Sato is “Only the brewery which took on this challenge can understand.”. Only a brewery which had made the sake with a 1% rice polish ratio, could see the undiscovered world. "Komyo", no other endeavor other than this one could open the door to this new frontier and bring rays of hopes to the "future of the world of sake". Thanks to the ultimate transparency of the sake, it is clear that this sake comes from a completely different world of sake, and will develop a new frontier of sake.

    Brewery:  Tatenokawa Shuzo (founded: 1832)

    Tatenokawa was the first Sake Brewery in Yamagata who decided to brew exclusively Junmai Daiginjo class sake, and hope to continue to do so while providing their high quality merchandise at an affordable price. Nearly all of the rice they use to brew is locally grown Miyama Nishiki and Dewasansan.  In 2014, ANA International picked this sake for their First Class and Business Class sake.
