Other text
Brand name Dewatsuru Originally founded in 1865, we were at first a small family owned brewery, And we have grown considerably over the decades. The name Dewatsuru means 'The crane of the Dewa region,' a name we adopted in 1913 to convey the elegance of our sake. The crane is a lovely bird, and symbolizes beauty and grace in Japan. We are located in the far northern mountainous prefecture of Akita, with its cold winters and heavy snowfall. The fresh air and low temperatures provide the ideal environment for sake fermentation. The soft water we use in brewing runs down from the nearby mountains, gushing up in a nearby spring, and gives our sake a soft and gentle overall feel. The use of several different sake rice varieties creates a wide range of flavor products among our sake.

Food pairing
Pairs well with broader range of possibilities from fried food, grilled meats, and aged cheeses

Producer
Located towards the northern end of Japan's main island of Honshu is the mountainous prefecture of Akita, with its cold winters and heavy snowfall. The fresh air and low temperatures provide the ideal environment for sake fermentation. We have two breweries, DEWATSURU and KARIHO. DEWATSURU is a refined sake that has a soft and subtly gentle flavor, By contrast, KARIHO, made from hard water, is much drier, with a lively, crisp character.
