Founded in 1903, the Saiya Brewery is one of the most award-winning breweries at the Japanese National Sake Competition. In the past fifteen years of the competition, the brewery has won an astonishing ten gold medals. Mr. Takahashi, their brewmaster, has been recognized by the Emperor of Japan as a cherished craftsman. This junmai ginjo is a favorite with new and seasoned sake drinkers alike. This limited release sake’s name translates as “cabin in the snow” and is clean, smooth, and pure. The brewer notes that it contains hints of anise on the nose; mango and strawberry on the palate, and finishes with a white pepper spice. It is recommended you serve chilled with salad, spicy foods, sashimi, and even desserts.
