Founded in 1823 in the late Edo period. The present head is 7th generation. At that time the Kura (brewery) was surrounded by dense forest where Tengu (long-nosed goblin), an imaginary being which had been Japanese tradition with mysterious power seemed to exist. The name Tengumai is derived from the meaning that even Tengu would dance after tasting this sake because the sake tastes so good. Since its foundation, the Shata family has been brewing sake in this beautiful pastoral land. The brewery is located in Ishikawa which is in central Japan and faces the Japan Sea.

Within 30 minutes drive from the brewery is the city of Kanazawa, which is renowned for its high level of art, food, culture and their magnificent Japanese gardens. It is considered a smaller version of Kyoto in many ways.Tengumai, amongst a selection of premium sakes, produce Yamahai sake which is very well known and respected, and matches many different foods, and has distinct flavour, texture and taste.

Tasting Note

Umajun means 'delicious' and this Tengumai sake is certainly that. This Junmai shows a beautifully complex aroma with hints of vanilla and crushed nuts. The texture is creamy and warms your palate, yet for Tengumai this is quite an elegant style, and the palate has some nice hints of citrus and nuts.
