Imayotsukasa


Imayotsukawa was founded in 1767. At the Imayotsukawa sake factory, only Niigata’s natural “Suganadake” spring water is used to make sake. Using this spring water and high quality sake rice, the sake is made with great care and has a strong, delicious flavor, even when compared to other dry sake. The historic factory building was built around 1900.

      Imayotsukasa "IMA" Oyster Junmai

      $52.00

      Produced after 3 years of R&D to pair with oysters, using a special strain of yeast to create higher levels of malic acid. This creates a juicy acidity to lighten the palate after having oysters. The sweetness of the sake creates a denser, bolder flavor to match the taste of oysters too.
