A complex, deep and settled brew, the lack of charcoal-flitering offers a host of delicious umami-laden nutty flavors, creamy vanilla notes, with hints of dark chocolate.
Founded in 1891 in Kagawa Prefecture, Shikoku, Kawatsuru got its name from the cranes that fed on the nearby river. They did their part to influence the direction of Kawatsuru, to create Sake with honest feelings; like the flow of the river. One cannot help but be affected by the honest and upfront style of their brews, which are bold in yet deep in flavour.
