Organaka
SAKE OVERVIEW

One of the few organic sakes produced in Japan and made with the intention of creating a completely natural product with nothing added. It is also made using the Yamahai method which starts the yeast production naturally instead of adding in the yeast starter. The area’s natural underground springs provide Tentaka with a pure, fresh water source, which is also triple-filtered.

Tasting Notes

Clean, dry, and straightforward, with bright banana and mild melon aromas and soft, subdued rice flavors. Careful tasting will reveal hints of smoke and crisp acidity from the yamahai process.

Food Pairing

Try with brussels sprouts, butternut squash, shiitake mushrooms, or pork loin.

The Brewery

Tentaka Brewery

Located in a region known for its pure rivers and natural beauty, Tentaka has created a sustainable microcosm to preserve and support future generations of sake.

• President Ozaki-san’s passion for the environment has led the brewery to use local ingredients, to reuse production byproducts, and to get Organic Certification in Japan, the US, and the European Union—one of only two breweries with triple certification.

• Brewed in a landlocked region, Tentaka sake is locally treasured with only a small amount of sake leaving the prefecture. It celebrates the local flavors of rustic, savory, and meaty foods by brewing rich sake with high acidity.
