Origin of the Brand Name

We took one of the brewery's old brands from more than 40 years ago, which at the time was used exclusively for sake sold in the local Shonai Region, and revived it into the brand for our fruit liqueurs.
It is a brand born from our desire to create an 'edible' fruit liqueur that targets both a female and younger alcohol shy audience.

Seasonal Calendar


From Harvesting to Shipment

The majority of the lineup is made with fruit grown and harvested in Yamagata Prefecture. Fruit harvested by the farmers is converted to juice, to which brewer’s alcohol and fructose are added.
It takes about one month from harvesting to complete the juice-conversion stage. The juice is then, depending on the variety, either refrigerated or frozen before being bottled according to a schedule that allows us to manage the stock levels. The time required for juice-conversion means that shipment may from time to time fall out of season.
We appreciate your understanding in this matter.
