Well of Wisdom

The juicy watermelon notes in this sake make it perfect for a warm day or for an apertif. Well of Wisdom draws its water source from the town of Fushimi, which means “hidden water” and is known for its characteristically soft and pure water that is perfect for brewing sake.

Typhoon

A table sake of remarkable quality with rustic banana bread and nut notes. Sturdy enough to handle being warmed or mixed in cocktails.

Night Swim

Tozai celebrates the balance between Japan's east & west and honors the Japanese koi fish, known for it's longevity and healthy life (some live to over 200 years!). Night Swim brings this iconic brand to you in an accessible, pocket-sized can perfect for the pool and beyond.

Snow Maiden

This sake is named after Hanako, or “Flower Maiden”, the most famous Japanese koi fish that lived for 226 years in the snowy, icy waters at the foot of Japan’s Mt. Ontake.

Blossom of Peace

Local, all-natural aodani plums are soaked in Tozai sake for over three months resulting in an incredibly balanced sake with tart, juicy acidity on the finish. Plum blossoms are known as "The Flowers of Peace" in Japan and symbolize growth, renewal, and awakening.
