Master blender François Chartier and toji Morikawa work closely together to change the process of making sake at Tanaka 1789.
Their goal: to develop the perfect final product to be used for making the best blends. Each blend is different in texture, flavor, color and, of course, aroma: making room for individuality.
That’s why each blend requires a different elaboration process, but always with the same attention and respect for tradition and philosophy. The one common denominator remains JUNMAI.
Rice is the primary ingredient. The use of local rice varieties is our signature and identity: Kuro no Hana rice adds more acidity and fragrance. We also use the renowned and noble Miyama Nishiki rice variety.
