Ozeki Sake (750ml)
In 1711 Ozeki Sake was established in Imazu, Hyogo prefecture, praised for centuries for its great water quality. Over the years Ozeki Sake has become one of the major sake brewers in Japan.
In order to better provide fresh tasting premium sake for American consumers, Ozeki started its U.S. production in Hollister, California, in 1979. Ozeki was the first Japanese sake brewer to locally brew sake within the U.S. They were innovative in localizing the entire sake brewing production, including the use of local rice grown especially for sake-making.
As rice and water are the two major ingredients in sake brewing, it was crucial to find a location with access to the best sources. After a long search, Hollister, California was found to have both the finest locally grown rice and easy access to the clear water from the Sierra Nevada in Northern California. The city of Hollister is located about 100 miles southeast of San Francisco and 40 miles east of Monterey. Hollister is situated in California’s Central Coast region with a mild climate perfect for sake brewing.
This sake is dry and delicate on the palate with a full-bodied flavor and well-balanced aroma. Let it warm you in the winter and cool you in the summer!
