For Basic plan members
Taxi driver numbers each barrel, since they change the ingredient and brewing method by barrels. This number has no consistency throughout years, so that the taste of taxi driver is totally different by barrels and brewery years. This label is Taxi driver #4. Once sipping it, the strong umami invades your mouth. The huge cluster of umami keeps striking your tongue one by one. The first impact is avant‐garde like its label, however, the gentle sweetness maintains the balance of taste. Comfortable sourness makes its aftertaste clear and dry. The aroma is gentle. To enjoy the deep umami, please taste it slowly and feel the layers of umami like turn the pages of classic novel.

RICE

Use the eating rice "Kakehashi" produced in Iwate more than usual brewery rice, which has basically more suitable for brewing than usual brewery rice. They figured out the best brewing method to make good use of this local rice by repeating try and error.

WATER

Use the super pure spring water wellling inside the brewery.

SKILL

The yeast utilized to brew this sake is original one produced in Iwate. The combination between the rice "Kakehashi" and the yeast is only one in Iwate. In 2016, new experienced brew master joined and started to inject his essence into the tradition of this brewery.

MIND

Stopped adding different alcohol to sake and become the only brewery to produce just Junmai type of sake. They are trying to encourage the local aglicalture with using only local materials.
