ABOUT TSURUNOE:
Tsurunoe is a very traditional, small brewery founded in 1794. It was originally intended for making miso and soy sauce. The water is classically soft, and they use only locally grown rice. The reflection of their technique is to brew a sake that begins with a big mouthfeel, that lasts long and slowly, beautifully, fading away in the mouth. Aizu Chushou sake are aged, blending older sake with newer sake; the aging process allowing the sake to become more sweet and flavorful.
