One of the few organic sakes produced in Japan and made with the intention of creating a completely natural product with nothing added. It is also made using the Yamahai method which starts the yeast production naturally instead of adding in the yeast starter. The area’s natural underground springs provide Tentaka with a pure, fresh water source, which is also triple-filtered.  Clean, dry, and straightforward, with bright banana and mild melon aromas and soft, subdued rice flavors. Careful tasting will reveal hints of smoke and crisp acidity from the yamahai process.
