Sake Gumi

Sansho are tiny pods that grow on small trees or bushes – there is a citrusy zest at first, but use sparingly or else your tongue will go numb! In Japan, you'll most commonly see sansho sprinkled over grilled eel dishes or yakitori. We also carry several sansho products at Umami Mart!




SANSHO PEPPER
We love this packet of freshly ground sansho directly from Japan, for its quick zip and tang. It's great on grilled meats, and when used in sauces and marinades.




KAGUA BEER SAISON
This is a pale, creamy, and slightly bitter Belgian-style ale made with a Japanese twist – a strong yuzu aroma. Refreshing! This beer is bottle-fermented, so be sure to pour it into a glass to enjoy.

Ships within California only.




KI NO BI GIN
Kyoto Distillery is the one of the only distilleries in Japan that makes gin exclusively, using the soft waters of Fushimi for a creamy mouthfeel. 

Ki No Bi blends six distillates: hinoki, yuzu, bamboo leaf, sansho, gyokuro and shiso. Enjoyon the rocks, in a Martini, or with a splash of sparkling water.

Ships within California only.
