Founded in 1823, Tengumai Shuzo is located facing the Japan Sea in the Ishikawa prefecture of central Japan. They produce traditional Yamahai sake using Gohyakumangoku rice.

Tasting note: Shows a bright, medium lemon colour in the glass. Not an overly aromatic nose, but what's there works well, showing ripe green fruit of nashi pear and custard apple, yellow melon, and notes of yoghurt and rich rice. On the palate this sake has great texture and umami feel, while showing flavours of green melon, honey, meringue and yoghurt. The richness and weight on the palate work well here. Serve cold or warm.
