About Brewer

Operating upon the conviction that “ Science, sense and passion are needed in brewing sake.”, this brewery is proficient in combining both science and craft sensibilities. Having abolished the distinct role of Head Brewer more than a decade ago, the Chief Operator now handles production directly, in tandem with his brother, giving rise to a wide range of styles, from aromatic styles employing the latest brewing techniques, through to traditional yamahai. Regularly earning golds from the nationwide Sake Review Committee and regional Liquor Review Committee – incorporating Fukuoka, Saga, and Nagasaki Prefectures – the pair also take leading roles in the local Fukuoka brewing associations.

About Product

As the label might suggest, Quadrifoglio refers to the lucky four-leafed clover, fittingly emblazoned in white over a field of green, just as the flowers are. With a slight cloudiness – due to some residual rice lees – the sake presents floral notes of pineapple, some subtle sweetness, and then moderate acidity leading to a crisp finish, before fading pleasantly.

Suitable Dish

Because it starts of astringent, it’s suitable for tempura such as Ostrich fern/Butterbur sprout, frit of white fish, Terrine of scallops etc. When it gets rounded by touching the air, it excellently matches to Firefly squid mixed with vinegar & miso, crab miso, Karasumi pasta, bang bang chicken etc.
