Kit Kat Sakuramasamune Daiginjo Flavour

There have been more than 300 limited-edition seasonal and regional flavors of Kit Kat produced in Japan since 2000. Kit Kat collaborated with Sakurmasamune to make Daiginjo Flavour Kit Kat.

Founded in 1625, Sakurmasamune is a well-known sake brewery with a history of nearly 400 years. The brewery uses the sake rice produced in Hyogo Prefecture “Yamada Nishiki” and locally available groundwater to make ginjoshu and junmaishu of the highest quality. This water called “miyamizu” and being vital to sake production in Hyogo was discovered by the 6th head of the family Tazaemon Yamamura. Sakuramasamune has thus made significant contributions as a pioneer to sake brewing in the areas of Nada.

Tanrei Karakuchi

Niigata is famous for a specific type of sake, “Tanrei Karakuchi” or very refined, light and dry.

Water is the key ingredient in making sake. The snow and rain that falls on the tall mountains of Niigata soaks into the earth, forming springs and streams and eventually flowing into the rice fields. This water not only makes the sake delicious, but also enhances the flavor of the rice, the other main ingredient in sake making.

Climate is also an important factor. The winter climate in Niigata is favorable, with the low temperatures that allow sake to ferment and develop.

Water, rice, climate, and exquisite brewing techniques come together to make Niigata sake premium in quality.
