Discover one of the oldest sake breweries in Japan. And enter our contest for your chance to win a bottle of light, fruity Kasegi Gashira!
The ward of Fushimi in Kyoto is famed for sake brewing – and the Masuda Tokubee Shoten Company is the area’s longest existing brewery, dating back over 300 years. But its long history has never stopped it from innovating.
Back in the 1960s, this Kyoto brewery created a new type of sake known as Nigori sake, a lightly filtered sparkling sake using a coarse-textured mesh that has become a classic with sake connoisseurs.
And in 2012, it launched Kasegi Gashira, a sake aimed at the international market with a winning combination of lightness, fruitiness and a lower alcohol content of 8%.
Kasegi Gashira is known for its drinkability and thirst-quenching acidity, with a subtle smoothness that lends it instant elegance – and makes it the perfect drink to pair with sushi, sashimi or yakitori.
Try to win a bottle of Kasegi Gashira!
