Please be introduced to our range of Japanese Fruit Sake! This is real fruity Sake made from fruits sourced from nearby farmers and steeped in sake to create a wonderfully fruity Sake. It is surprisingly not so sweet and the natural flavours of the fruit are very much at the forefront.
There is no real Sake taste and it is more like a juice drink in flavour because of the abundance of fruits; a great summer drink and with a lower alcohol content than normal Sake.

How the brewery started the Fruit Sake business: Born from an Encounter with the Finest Fruits
They met a wonderful ripe Nanko plum famer which is harvested in the mountains and has a rich scent reminiscent of peaches. They found they were able to soak these plums plums in Sake to create a Fruit Sake with a beautiful plum flavour and soft taste.
After talking with the farmer they discovered about domestically grown lemons that were cultivated on another farm. The lemons in Japan are usually imported with a pointed shape similar to an American football ball, but domestic lemons are rounder and are less sour than imported products so the farmer said they were not selling well.
However, the domestic lemon’s sourness is soft, and in addition to the Japanese-style tenderness, it also has a ripe and rich umami. It is a wonderful thing with a strangely slight sweetness. Also imported lemons are harvested in an immature state and turn yellow during import, and that wax for preservative purposes is used. The strong acidity that creates the sourness is because it is harvested in the immature state. The Japanese lemons do not use pesticides or the antiseptic wax.
So the brewery master visited the lemon gardens on the slope of the mountain which started cultivating lemons more than 100 years ago. They fell in love with the lemon, whose taste has been passed down for 100 years and so the brewery, starting with these two flavors, went on to create a range of Fruit Sakes made from love of the finest fruits.
