"Yonetsuru Kamenoo Junmai-daiginjo" is a Junmai Daiginjo brewed from 50% milled "Kamenoo", a famous rice cultivar known as "magical rice" which has been revived and used in full for the production of this sake. "Kamenoo" is a rice cultivar with excellent attributes for sake production that was first created in Yamagata prefecture in the Meiji period (1868-1912) and widely cultivated in eastern Japan. After acquiring a pure strain of seed rice stored at a research institute in Yamagata prefecture, workers at this brewery began to cultivate this rice locally from 1982 and gradually revived its use. Since then, it has formed the "Takahata Sake Rice Research Association" together with local farmers to work on the entire production process of Junmai Daiginjo from the cultivation of "Kame no O" to the brewing of the sake. This beautiful sake is distinctive for its full-bodied aroma and delicate taste which features subtle notes of grapes, pears, and bananas. The sake acquires an enhanced depth of flavor from its long fermentation process, during which it is aged at a low temperature for over 2 years in the refrigerators of the brewery. This is a valuable sake whose evolving flavors over the years will be an immense source of delight.

About "Yonetsuru"
The name "Yonetsuru" is derived from the bowing posture of ears of rice and the locally told tale "Crane's Return of a Favor." It incorporates a wish to create a sake that conveys a sense of gratitude and is imbued with sincerity. Under the concept of brewing that starts with rice-growing, this Japanese sake uses locally produced rice to offer a refreshing balance of scent, taste, and sharpness.
