A liqueur blending yuzu juice and Yoshinogawa sake, for a smooth and luxurious taste and refreshing aromas and flavours.
Refreshing nose and mouth, a harmony resulting from the marriage between domestic yuzu and sake, reminiscent of ryokan aperitifs, making the meal that follows even more delicious. It can be enjoyed as is, with galçons or cut with sparkling water, but can also be poured over ice.
Founded in 1548, Yoshinogawa House is the oldest sake house in Niigata, and the 5th oldest in all of Japan. Based in the Settaya district of the famous brewery town of Nagaoka, Yoshinogawa has been making sake for more than 470 years in keeping with the times, incorporating state-of-the-art technology while maintaining the ancestral techniques of sake brewing, and it is no exaggeration to say that this balance is a key factor in Yoshinogawa's uninterrupted success over the years.
The main ingredient in the sake, the carefully selected rice used by the house is produced in Niigata, grown in the pure water of the Nagaoka Mountains, where some of the world's heaviest snowfalls occur. This water is not only used to flood the rice fields, but also when brewing sake. The cold also produces clean air that acts as a natural refrigerator and keeps breweries at low temperatures. So why should we be surprised by the many international awards that crown a sake brewed from exceptional rice, spring water so sweet that it seems sweet, and a low-temperature brewing process typical of the "Land of Snow" described by the writer Yasunari Kawabata? These dry and silky sake typical of Niigata have thus found their fans all over Japan and abroad, gaining great fame. So much so that when the sign of the Yoshinogawa house in front of Niigata Station was removed in February 2020, voices of discontent were raised against this outrage to an institution in the city, and the subject was covered by the TV news.
