Today, the number of people who enjoy sake is declining,
especially among the younger generation. We would like to utilise the
rice-polishing technology that TATENOKAWA has developed over the years to offer
a high quality sake that is appropriate as a gateway for those who are trying
sake for the first time. We also hope that this sake will be the first step
towards the TATENOKAWA Extreme Series. We have launched the SAKERISE project to
incorporate this current situation in Japan and the wishes of the breweries.
The sake is crafted meticulously with the desire to preserve
and promote sake as a culture and to "be a beacon of Hope for Sake".

The 2nd product of SAKERISE, following on from 'GYO-KOU'.

The light that runs lightly across the wavering blue sea of Shonai.
The light that comes and goes.

High-polishing ratio's sake has a gorgeous aroma and is easy to get fatigued by drinking and has a strong sweetness, making it difficult to taste with food.
Despite its 18% rice polishing ratio, SEN-KOU is brewed as a mid-meal sake to clear up such misconceptions.
Miyama Nishiki is one of the brewery's specialities, as it is a rice that reveals its character in cool regions.
The Miyama Nishiki rice grown in Shonai region by contract farmers is carefully cultivated by the brewery staff to create a soft but core flavour and a dry taste that can only be produced by high polishing.

SAKERISE GYO-KOU Limited Quantity

Brewed inspired by the light of hope at dawn that heralds the start of a new day, GYO-KOU is a new style of sake. 

This sake is made from Yuki Megami, a Daiginjo sake rice developed in Yamagata, and is characterised by its concentration, refinement and beautifully lasting aftertaste. The aroma is like that of a melon reaching perfect maturity after a few hours. The sweetness, tender deliciousness and soft acidity gradually change in the palate, creating a long, well-balanced and elegant aftertaste. 

Serve in a wine glass by all means in order to enjoy the aromas. We recommend a glass that is smooth and easy on the palate, such as a standard white wine glass. As for the temperature, we recommend 5°C to 12°C right out of the fridge. 

Enjoy the change in flavour as the temperature changes. The flavour of the sake may not fully open up immediately after opening the bottle. In this case, it is recommended to keep the bottle in the fridge and allow it to air for 2-3 days after opening.
