Founded in 1897 in Itoigawa, Tahara House has chosen a name that bodes well for its sake, meaning "a sake as sublime and beautiful as a crane dancing on the snow". The rice is brewed with spring water found at the foot of Mount Kubikikomagatake, and steamed in large traditional wagama kettles. The kôji is made by hand and the sake obtained by pressing. Niigata sake is often perceived as "fresh and dry," but the Yukitsuru sake from the Tahara house stands out as being dominated by umami.
The house is now run by Yohei Tahara, the fourth generation of the house, who graduated from Hiroshima University in brewing technology. Always in search of the best luxury sake, the company decided to create "Yukitsuru" sake, one of the first junmai to be marketed, described as "dry and tasty".
