Nagai Sake Brewery was founded in 1898 by Nagai Shōji (永井庄治) in the village of Kawaba (川場村). It uses the natural water of Mount Hotaka (武尊山) filtered through the earth of Oze, which intertwines and fuses in Kawaba. In 1992, the brewery launched its leading brand, "Mizubashō". The Mizubashō warehouse was completed in 1994 to produce ginjō with a thorough focus on quality. In 2008, Mizubashō Pure, a sparkling sake made by a secondary fermentation process in the bottle, was born. The international and domestic production and product patents obtained show the development of sake using the traditional Champagne production method. Vintage Sake is a new concept of sake, which is not old sake but new sake with a taste that can only be achieved by adding the passage of time. Mizubashō Pure is positioned as a sparkling sake, followed by conventional branded sake (Junmai Ginjō and Junmai Daiginjō from Mizubashō and Tanigawadake) as still sake. This is followed by vintage and dessert sake, launched in February 2014, laying out the Nagai style the brewery aimed for.

Mizubashō Tanigawadake Chōkara Junmai has a fruity nose with notes of blueberries, bananas, and cantaloupe. It also has floral undertones and spicy hints of alcohol. The initial impression is very promising. It offers a mild approach on the palate with a soft and elegant mouthfeel. There's a subdued acidity and a pleasing dryness. The rice aroma is most elegant, and the finish lingers gently. Despite being labelled as "cho-kara," it is mild, rich in umami, and exhibits delicate elegance. This is one of the cases where you wish you had a larger bottle.
