Umenoyado Sake Brewery was founded in 1893 in Nara Prefecture, at the base of Mount Katsuragi. While sake brewing often uses automated methods, Umenoyado employ traditional techniques such as the “Kimoto & yamahai” process, which yields a unique, nostalgia-inducing taste, complete with a pleasant afterglaze. Seeking to further explore the joy and flavors of sake, they have developed a range of liqueurs made with seasonal fruits like plum, peach, orange, apple and yuzu from across Japan. To maintain quality, Umenoyado rely on automated analysers and precise manual blending procedures. Despite this technology, they take the time to ensure that all aspects are tasted and verified by human senses, so that they can continuously enhance the flavor of Umenoyado sake..
