Sake and Shochu Gumi

When we had an event at our bar with Takeda Shuzo in 2023, this was the bottle that sold out first. With notes of tropical fruit, cocoa, and caramel, this is a bold nama tastes as memorable as its striking label.

Takeda Shuzo is located in the coastal fishing village of Joetsu. Seizaemon Takeda started brewing in Kamiko Funatsu, a small fishing boat moorage, at the end of the Edo Period (1866). In 1990, Shigenori Takeda was appointed the current director and he is now joined by his son Haruki. They have only two other brewery workers.

Note: We can ship this sake, but due to the nature of shipping, please note that fluctuations in temperature can affect the freshness of the drink, and we will always recommend picking up locally when possible. Please proceed with shipping at your own risk.
