Dewazakura Sake Brewery

Yamagata Prefecture


Dewazakura is one of the most innovative sake-makers in Japan, using new yeast strains, rice varieties and brewing techniques to craft distinctly original sakes. The brewery’s “Oka” label, introduced in 1980, is credited with popularizing ginjo sakes at a time when few people in Japan had heard of them. In the early ‘90s Dewazakura began storing unpasteurized sake at 25 degrees Fahrenheit to keep it as aromatic and flavorful as possible until bottling. New labels made from Dewasansan and Omachi rice have added to the brewery’s reputation as a creator of modern sakes that are fragrant, delicate and refreshing.

Serving recommendations

“Yukimanman” is best enjoyed slightly cooled. This is a sake to savor slowly, like a prized sherry. Goes quite well with soft cheeses and light Mediterranean-style tapas.
