Sake of the Week #4 - Kawatsuru Wisdom

Our featured Sake of the Week is Kawatsuru Junmai Daiginjo Wisdom..

Founded in 1892, the sake name Kawatsuru is named after a river crane, from the time their founder saw a beautiful crane flutter down to the pristine waters of the Saita River.

This river is also known as the Takarada River (fortune river), as its water is seen as bringing treasures to the surrounding rice fields. From the spring water of this river, we brew sakes with powerful and refreshing taste.

Kawatsuru's aim is to be a true sake brewing group that protects the spirit of sake brewing, which has been passed down since the first generation. Kawatsuru not only excels in sake making but also rice cultivating as well.

Kawazuru's sake has a taste that spreads the flavor in a pleasant way, as it is packed with the full flavor of rice. Most of the rice used is locally grown rice such as Sanuki Yoimai and Oidemai.

Watch our in-house sake sommelier, Grace Koh, talk about one of her favourite sakes.


Remember to watch to the end for the bloopers, they are hilarious!

Together with the launch of our Sake of the Week, we are offering 10% off all Kawatsuru Sakes!
