The Karasu (Crow) Tengu in folklore is known to use its mystical powers to protect forests and wild places as well as using their prodigious skills with weapons to instruct samurai the ways of war. This Tengu is grassy and full of umami with a long, banana-yogurt finish that leaves you thirsting for more. Your new favorite food-friendly bottle and amazing conversation piece at the table. Cheers!
As a child, Toji Saori Kobari was inspired to keep the family brewery running by watching festival-goers in her town drink Daitengu sake. She is the brewery’s fifth generation toji and uses traditional methods such as funashibori (vat press) and brews in small lots. Because of this she says, “The taste will change a little depending on the year and tank, like wine.” Read the full interview with Soari Kobari here.
