About Brewer

This brewery is located in Aki City, Kochi Prefecture, where the Akano River and its renowned sweetfish can also be found. A relatively small brewery, they bring a playful and adventurous spirit to their craft. Some might have you believe that the name Akitora – ‘The Tiger of Aki’ – derives from the Hanshin Tigers baseball team, who use Aki City as a spring training ground, but don’t be fooled. The name actually derives from Aki Kunitori, a feudal lord with a fiery history who once resided in the local castle. The sake, by contrast, adopts a welcoming demeanor with its mild flavor.

About Product

This first-pressed sake, using first-harvest rice each year, is a celebration of the new vintage. With a gentle sweetness and clean acidity, it makes for perfect table sake.
A fresh, youthful aroma of melon, followed by an underlying savory element provides balance, while the remaining rice lees drift like the early springtime snow in the glass.
