Sawanoi's brewery is located deep inside the valleys along the western side of Tokyo prefecture. Accordingly, the heavily sloped land makes it impossible to drill a well vertically. Sawanoi's source for its water is a well that was drilled horizontally into the side of a mountain. The water sourced from this unique well generally takes 7-8 years to filter through the mountain rock.

The palest shade of straw possible in the glass, the nose of this sake has rich aromas of pear, rose blossoms, and subtle spice. A very clean, balanced palate follows, with flavors of sweet rice, white grape, and ripe pineapple. Smooth and elegant.
