- People eat and drink. This is a daily routine that has been carried out for thousands of years. We believe that the value of sake is to make this experience richer and more enjoyable. We believe this is the value of sake. Nara is the birthplace of Japanese sake. Our brewery was founded in 1719. We pursue sake that can only be made in the modern age to become the next tradition. Kaze no Mori was started in 1998 with the desire to make sake made from local rice, freshly pressed, for the local people to enjoy. The name comes from the name of a place in Gosho City, "Kaze no Mori Pass. Located at the foot of the lush green Katsuragi Kongo Mountain, a pleasant breeze blows through the pass all year round. The tradition of Nara sake, established 500 years ago, has been modified with modern technology, and we will continue to take on the challenge of creating the next generation of sake, sake that can only be made in this day and age. Kaze no Mori expresses the difference in taste depending on the type and polish of rice. At ALPHA KAZA NO MORI, we will seek the possibilities of the next sake with flexible ideas and new techniques. Pour the sake into a glass. The color is a transparent lemon yellow. The slight carbon dioxide gas from the fermentation process creates bubbles. When you put it close to your face, you can detect a faint fruity aroma. When you put it in your mouth, the refreshing aroma fills your nose and the voluminous flavor rushes into your mouth. After passing down the throat, there is a lingering acidity that clarifies the palate. Sake that tickles the five senses in a series of movements when drinking. That is Kaze no Mori.
