  • Juyondai is considered the world's most mysterious, sought-after and expensive sake.

    Juyondai sake is made by the Takagi Shuzo brewery in Yamagata prefecture, Japan. Founded in 1615, the brewery is an old store that has seen 400 years of ups and downs. There are many brands in the sake industry, such as Dassai, Hakkaisan, Kubota and others. Juyondai is the most famous sake brand, originating from the 14th generation of brewers at Takagi Shuzo.

    As the most sought-after sake on the market, Juyondai is expensive. But the brewery also offers an entry-level sake that remains premium, equivalent to or better than the best wine produced by other brewers.

    Juyondai's success is largely due to its unique fragrant fruity aroma and fresh taste, which make it even more special in the traditional Japanese sake market. Juyondai is also unique in its selection of sake rice. Takagi Shuzo has developed its own rice varieties and yeast to create an exclusive taste.
