Mantensei creates elegant expressions of umami through sake that can be enjoyed at a wide variety of temperatures.

  • Mantensei polishes its rice to 50% even though the sake is not a Daiginjo in order to create extreme drinkability alongside rich umami and savory notes—a rare balance.
  • They use a higher-than-usual ratio of koji rice to bring out distinctive notes of smoke, honey, and soy.
