Tamanohikari Brewery in Fushimi, Kyōto, was founded in 1673 by Nakaya Rokuzaemon (中屋六左衛門), who received his license from Tokugawa Mitsusada (徳川光貞), the grandson of Ieyasu and the second lord of the Kishū domain in modern-day Wakayama. Rokuzaemon was devoted to Hayatama Shrine in Kumano, Kishū, and named his sake Tamanohikari, honouring the shrine's principal deities Izanagi-no-Mikoto and Izanami-no-Mikoto. Tamanohikari Sake Brewing Co., Ltd. was founded in 1949 and moved to Fushimi in 1953. Tamanohikari is known as a producer of premium junmai and ginjō sake.

Tamanohikari Brewery is in Fushimi, an area in the south of Kyoto. Fushimi is famous for its medium hard water, which contains the perfect amount of minerals dissolved from the underlying granite layer. Tamanohikari's Junmai Daiginjo is not your usual fare. It has a fruity nose of melons with intensive notes of alcohol and faint notes of marzipan and rock sugar. What surprised us was its marked dryness, paired with a range of moderate sweet flavours; its light body unveils multiple aromatic layers on the palate, along with a slight tingle of minty spiciness and a little effervescence—a smooth sake with an exciting and deep character.
