Celebratory sake inheriting Kyoto’s traditional culture
In the middle of the Muromachi period (around 1400) among more than 300 sake breweries in and around Kyoto, “Yanagizake” in Kyoto City made “Yanagi,” the first brand-named sake in Japan. Our brewery inherited the brand name. There is a custom from long ago to bring “Yanagidaru,” a type of wooden cask made of willow tree, to a celebration. The sound of “Yanagidaru” can be interpreted as expressing a wish of “great happiness inside the home,” and it also means good fortune.
