Profile: A brewery hidden in a bamboo groove that came to be known as Take no Tsuyu.
Rice. Yeast. Koji. Water. Brewers. Nature. Each piece of the puzzle of their sake is sourced locally, from the best source possible, and brewing is all done sustainably and by hand.
Take no Tsuyu was named Eternally Best in Japan at the first All-Japan New Sake Competition.
MTC Sake is the Japanese Beverage branch of New York Mutual Trading Company.
