Sake From The Umeda Brewery
The Umeda Sake Brewery wishes to send world-class sake directly from its hometown in Hiroshima. As a result, "TAO" is brewed with rice, water, and yeast, all sourced from the prefecture. The Hattan Nishiki rice is entirely grown in the vicinity of the brewery. The local "Hiroshima Ginjo Yeast" is used and is responsible for TAO's unique fruity and gorgeous scents. The water used is pumped from 60 meters underground from Mount Iwataki, a local symbol of Funakoshi, Aki-ku, Hiroshima City, where the sake brewery is located.
