Founded in 1849, the Tajima Brewery is managed by the 6th generation of the family. The brewery specializes in the production of yamahai sake. The traditional yamahai method of brewing sake takes 3 times longer than modern methods, but it gives the sake an exceptionally layered and complex flavor. The Tajima family named their sake Fuku Chitose to express their wish that their sake will always bring happiness to those who drink it. Fuku means “happiness” while chitose means “forever”.
The Tajima Brewery is located 15 miles inland from the Sea of Japan in the Momozono area of Fukui City in Fukui Prefecture. Fukui is south of Ishikawa and Toyama: together, the three prefectures comprise the Hokuriku district which acts as a fish, sake and good belt to the Kansai and Kanto areas.
Savory aromas of pumpkin and spices with complex earthy flavors. The finish is dry and long lasting.
