A representative from Tatenokawa, a renowned Sake brewery established in 1832, recently visited us from Japan to introduce their new 2022 Soube Wase Junmai Daiginjo Sake, which boasts exceptional quality. Tatenokawa has a long history of striving for perfection in Sake production, highlighted by their commitment to using the finest ingredients, such as the rare Soube Wase rice. This heirloom rice strain, nearly extinct 150 years ago and revived from seeds stored at the Japanese Seedbank, offers a unique, complex flavor profile that sets it apart from more commonly used varieties. The newly introduced Sake, limited to 2,000 bottles annually with just 30 bottles imported to the USA, represents a more accessible yet still exquisite option compared to their previous offerings like the Nehan Black. It features a rich, aromatic expression and a balanced taste of elegance and richness, promising to improve with age. Tatenokawa remains the sole producer of Sake from Soube Wase, emphasizing their dedication to crafting unparalleled Sake with a deep respect for tradition and quality.
