“Raifuku” & “Harada” In-store tasting event @ Ikebukuro

You can taste Raifuku, Raifuku sake brewery from Tochigi prefecture, and Harada, Hatsumomidi sake brewery from Yamaguchi prefecture.

Raifuku Sake Brewery

Raifuku Shuzo is a very unique brewery and has grabbed the attention of many from across the country as it uses “flower yeast” made from Japan’s native flora to brew the sake.  The Laboratory of Alcoholic Beverages in the Department of Brewing and Fermentation of Tokyo University of Agriculture’s junior college succeeded in extracting Japanese sake yeast from wild flowers. Research is still ongoing, but currently flowers such as Nadeshiko (fringed pink), Tsurubara (rambler),  Madagascar periwinkle and Begonia are playing the major roles. More kinds of new flower yeast may be found in the near future.

Raifuku Choseimai Junmai Daiginjo
“Raifuku Choseimai Junmai Daiginjo” won the top prize in the Super Premium division of the “SAKE COMPETITION 2016,” a sake contest in July 2016 to pick the world’s best-tasting sake available on the market.
