山形正宗 Products from Yamagata Masamune
Established in 1898 in Yamagata prefecture. The brewery uses water with high mineral content which is very rare in Japan. The water allows the brewery to brew sake with a crisp, sharp finish, like a famous sword “Masamune”.
Since 2010 the brewery only brews Junmai styles of sake, using no additional alcohol. For Yamagata Masamune, Junmai sake are better to fully express the rich umami flavours of rice. Their objective is making sake that are generous, rich and expressive of the rice and with a crisp finish.
