Madonoume (300 ml) Namachozo Tokubetsu Junmai, Saga Prefecture Login In Stock

Founded in 1688, Saga Prefecture’s oldest still-operating brewery is currently in it 13th generation of succession. Legend has it that in 1860, a plum tree branch made its way through one of the brewery’s windows and dropped a blossom into a tank of sake. The name Mado No Ume (Plum of the Window) was bestowed upon the sake after receiving much acclaim from the local samurai lord. Not yielding to brewing trends or production fads, Madonoume seeks to continue to brew the sake of tradition with the brewery slogan being, "We will continue to bloom the flower of sake’s traditional culture."
