Kubota Sagaminada Junmai Ginjō Yamadanishiki (相模灘 純米吟醸 山田錦) is made of Yamadanishiki rice milled to 50% and No. 9 yeast to make the most of the well-balanced characteristics of Yamadanishiki. It is a food sake combining the rich flavour of Yamadanishiki with the transparency of ginjō-style brewing. It is quite tart when fresh, but its depth of flavour and transparency become much more pronounced as it matures. A nama version is available during winter.

久保田酒造株式会社公式オンラインショップ powered by BASE創業1844年（弘化元年）の久保田酒造は丹沢山系の湧水を用いて日本酒「相模灘」の製造を行っています。相模灘の酒造りは基本に忠実な吟醸造りをベースにしていますが吟醸香は穏やかに香る程度の自然なもので、あくまで米の旨味を生かしたバランスの良い食中酒を目指して仕込んでいます。伝統ある酒蔵の歴史を守ると共に、常により高い次元での美味しさを追求して行く次世代の酒蔵でありたいと思っています。sagaminada.thebase.in
The brewery uses spring water from the Tanzawa mountains to produce its Sagaminada sake. The brewery's area remains as rich in nature as it was when founded, with bamboo groves, wild vegetables in spring, and fireflies flitting about in summer. It has been used as a filming location for movies. Sagaminada's sake brewing is based on the basic ginjō style, but the ginjō aroma is only mild and natural.
Kubota offers brewery tours by prior arrangement. The number of visitors at any one time is limited to a maximum of thirty people. The tour lasts about twenty minutes and is followed by a tasting and sale at the shop next to the brewery. The tour, including tasting and sale, will take about one hour.
