Problems of Mass Production

Very sadly, we encounter Sake that the bottling date is quite a long time ago in the bottle shop or super market.

Not refrigerated?

The sunlight and storing under the improper temperature damages Sake heavily. Sometimes, we find must-chilled Sake displaying outside of the fridge.

sake lees

SOMETHING RELATED TO SAKE

We periodically give the unique items related to sake like brewer’s rice, sake lees which is the off-product of brewing and brewer’s apron and so forth to subscribers.

Snow-Aging Sake

Please simply consider you will receive 12 + 1 bottles* in 1 year. When you subscribe SAKEMARU, we store and mature the sake in the sake cellar produced with the natural snow. After 1 year, you can take the snow-aging sake anytime you’d like to. If you’d like to mature more than 1 year, you can mature as long as you’d like.

WHAT'S SNOW AGING

Snow dorm is the natural cold room made with ancestors' wisdom. Japanese people started to build snow dorms to store meats, vegetables, and ice in ancient times. The snow piled up like mountain-high never melt up throughout a year even in a hot summer. Also, it has been scientifically proven as the method to make the taste of sake better. Ancestors are always great!!

KEEP LOW TEMP & HIGH HUMIDITY

The humidity inside the snow dorm is normally over 70% due to the moisture comes from snow and the temperature is kept blew 0 to 5 degrees throughout the year. This environment is prefect to keep foods and drinks fresh.
On the other hand, the environment of the refrigerator is very unsettled due to frequently open and shut and cooling system.

NO VIBRATION, NO LIGHT

Snow dorm is only cooled by natural snow so that there are neither vibration nor light. The dark and stable environment is necessary to preserve foods and drinks including sake.
Contrary to snow dorm, refrigerators keep vibrating due to electricity and are frequently exposed to lights due to open and shut.

EFFECT TO THE TASTE OF SAKE

Snow dorm actually gives the positive effect to foods and drinks. The taste of sake tends to be richer and milder. The mechanism is scientifically figured out gradually, for example, it reduces the aldehyde which gives the negative effect on the aroma. Years maturity in snow dorm, aged sake is gradually changing the color to amber, taste to be much richer and milder.

You will lose the right to receive the snow-aging sake if you cancel before 12 months pass.

You can manually request to take your snow-aging sake out on our website.
