Christian Mazzalai who spearheaded the project stated that “Mr. Kuroda was a great master who taught all the beauties of life which include sake, and is still inspiring us every day.

Profile: Tatenokawa was the first Sake Brewery in Yamagata who decided to brew exclusively Junmai Daiginjo class sake, and hope to continue to do so while providing their high quality merchandise at an affordable price. Nearly all of the rice they use to brew is locally grown Miyama Nishiki and Dewasansan. 

In 2014, ANA International picked this sake for their First Class and Business Class sake.
