Saké One :
Momokawa Organic Junmai Ginjo Saké & Nigori


Just outside of Portland, Oregon, SakéOne is America’s only craft saké brewer, and the only American owned and operated saké brewery. The soft, sweet Oregon rain water is chemically ideal for saké brewing. The company makes many fine products, but the Momokawa Organic Junmai Ginjo Saké (fuller-body, richer style) and a Nigori (old-style, loosely-filtered saké). The only organic sakés in America, they are delicious—not just with Japanese food, but with many things, including raw bar items and grilled fish. Learn more about the different types of saké, and read our review of SakéOne’s G Ultrapremium Sake.
