The brewery claims that Tenzan Jizake Junmai Genshu (天山 地酒 純米原酒) is one of its most popular sake in Japan and overseas. With its rich aroma of banana, umami and 'rice sweetness,' it goes well with rich and savoury dishes. The bottle comes wrapped in bamboo leaves and makes an excellent gift.

Tenzan Brewery was founded in 1875, when Shichida Toshizo and his wife Tsuki, both engaged in water milling and producing noodles, were asked to take over the brewery after it had gone out of business. It is located in Ogi, Saga Prefecture, at the foot of Mount Tenzan, and run by the sixth-generation tōji Shichida Kensuke (七田謙介).

The noodle business that started as a milling business ended in the 1960s. Around that period, Shichida Hideichi, the third Kuramoto, was delighted when a famous restaurant, Kuramoto in the Kansai area, praised his somen noodles as having the best quality in Japan. In 1959, the third-generation Kuramoto Shichida Hideichi decided to focus solely on the sake brewing business and reorganised the brewery as Tenzan Shuzō. Nowadays, they produce sake, shochu, and liqueur.

This is a genshu: undiluted sake with an alcohol content of 18%. It has a strong nose of koji, almonds, and bananas. Strong, alcoholic, and sweet aroma with fruity hints. Smooth and creamy, slightly dry and bitter finish. The box and the bamboo wrap are really unique.
