Tatenyan (who is a modeled after an actual cat who lives at the brewery) is the Tatenokawa’s official mascot. One day she snuck into the brewery as a stray and has lived there ever since.
Tatenokawa was the first Sake Brewery in Yamagata who decided to brew exclusively Junmai Daiginjo class sake, and hope to continue to do so while providing their high quality merchandise at an affordable price.
With a reserved aroma, well balanced rice umami and a round flavor, Tatenyan Junmai Daiginjo is great served chilled or at room temperature with sushi, sashimi, or grilled fish.
This sake also pairs well with sparsely seasoned meat dishes like pork shabu shabu and yakitori with salt.
