The golden color of this sake delights the eye as well. Matching with Japanese dish or Chinese dishes. This sake is very acidic and complements various dishes.
History of Tengumai :
Shata Shuzo was founded in 1823 late in the Edo Period. The present head of the family is the seventh since the time of foundation. When it was founded,it was surrounded by dense forest,and it looked as if Tengu,an uncanny creature in Japanese folklore seen as a guardian of mountains,was living in the forest.
The name"Tengumai"(dancing Tengu)comes from the idea that even a mysterious Tengu would feel like dancing after drinking this sake.
Ever since then,the Shata family has continued to make this sake in the beautiful countryside.
