Rice grown in-house on our own field Fukushima’s origin sake rice Yume no Kaori
Yume no Kaori took approximately 10 year to develop, and is a hybrid of Hattan Nishiki No.1 and Dewa Sansan. It has a large rice grain, as well as a large shinpaku; it's good water absorption character making it easy to dissolve in mash, ideal for making sake.

Our Commitment to Sake
Drip separation uses only gravity to separate the sake from the mash, without applying any external pressure. It takes time and effort, but it produces the finest sake with the purest flavor. With the cold winter, it is possible to maintain the high quality of the sake and ship them overseas. Enjoy this seasonal luxury that is only available at this time of year.
Our Commitment to Rice Shochu
Only by using a small distiller with vacuum technology, Snow Dragon’s Shochu is distilled at a low temperature of 30 degrees with low pressure. The resulting rich shochu is full of aroma and without any impure flavor.
