Watermelon-like melon aroma. The pleasant acidity and dry but slightly sweet aftertaste. Best matched with spicy foods.

Ine to Agave is a new and innovative craft saké brewery that was established in 2021 in Oga, Akita Prefecture.

The brewery’s name comes from their use of agave syrup in their signature product.

This is due to Japan’s current license barrier surrounding sake producers, where issuance of new licenses to brew sake are not permitted.

Therefore, they utilize the license of “Other Brewed Alcohol” and produce sake with a very small amount of the secondary ingredients other than rice, or “doburoku” without pressing moromi.

This gives them more freedom and creativity to experiment with different recipes and techniques. All their saké is made with naturally grown rice from Ishiyama Farm, the first organic JAS-certified natural rice farm in Japan.

The brewery respects the quality of the rice they receive and minimizes food waste by using a low rice milling rate of 90%. Ine to Agave is a brewery that challenges the conventions of saké making and offers a fresh and exciting experience for saké lovers.
