In Harmony with Nature
Yamagata Honten brewery aims to work harmoniously with nature to handcraft the highest quality sake and Boucho-Tsuru reflects that. Each of the patterns in its logo represents a part of nature that contributes to the making of Boucho-Tsuru.
The water from the ocean evaporates and turns into clouds, causing rain and snow to fall on the mountains.
Rain and snow seeps into the soil of the majestic Chugoku Mountains. Yamagata Honten uses the Mountain’s fresh underground water for brewing Bouchotsuru.
The mild climate of the Seto Inland Sea allows the sake rice to grow abundantly in the full glow of the summer sun.
Water evaporated from the seas creates fresh rainwater that hydrates the fields to grow healthy and organically.
Boucho-Tsuru is 100% made from locally-grown rice “yamadanishiki” from the Yamaguchi prefecture, supporting local farmers.
“If you drink sake wholeheartedly, you can conquer the world.”
