Takatenjin is produced at the Doi Brewery. In a region of endless sunshine and pristine water sources, brewery Doi Shuzo stands out as an iconic producer of the fruity, dry style of sake that the area is known for. Takatenjin is brewed at Doi Shuzo, which is recognized for its environmentally-friendly use of solar power, on-site water treatment, and other renewable energy sources. Pure water put Shizuoka on the map for its tea production and its concentration of wasabi fields—two delicate products that require flawless water like sake does.
Bright and refreshing, this sake is the perfect choice for daytime drinking and is the brewery employees’ drink of choice. The juniper botanicals and cucumber notes make it the perfect gin lover’s sake. It is named after the brewery founder who fought many battles near the ruins of Takatenjin Castle. It is very close to being a Ginjo but reined in by flavors and aromas to allow more easy drinking.
This sake commemorates the life of the previous Toji who was a Brew Master Sensei and one of the “Four Guardians of Heaven” from the prestigious Noto Toji Guild. The brewery continues its former sensei’s traditions with this clean, dry and rich brew which is considered one of Japan’s most highly regarded sake.
