Fresh and fragrant, Sanka conjures images of an alpine meadow in spring. This is a subtle, elegant sake with aroma notes of peach, banana, and aniseed.
Miyasaka Brewing Company
Masumi is one of the great names of the sake world, admired throughout Japan for its unshakable down-to-earth reliability. The brewery where it is made was founded in 1662 in the town of Suwa, where a tradition of precision craftsmanship had led to the development of the silk spinning trade. Masumi achieved great prominence in 1946 with the discovery of a new yeast variety, “Nanago” or Association No. 7. With its gentle aroma and ease of use Nanago continues to be used by over half of the breweries in Japan.
