Ume Ichirin Shuzō, a brewery in Sammu, in the centre of the Kujukuri Plain in Chiba Prefecture, believes that local sake needs to be part of the dietary habits of its local customers. Ume Ichirin's rice is produced in the brewery's home region of Kujukuri. In September 1984, Wakabayashi Shuzōten (若林酒造店, founded in 1868, brand name 'Wakaroku') and Nakata Shōten (中田商店, founded in 1912, brand name 'Shogen') merged in Sammu to form Sammu Shuzō (山武酒造店), which was eventually renamed Ume Ichirin Shuzō in October 1993. This brand name is derived from a phrase by Hattori Ransetsu (服部嵐雪, 1654-1707), a samurai and disciple of Matsuo Bashō (松尾 芭蕉): "The warmth of a single plum blossom" 「梅一輪 一輪ほどの暖かさ」. The brand name "Ume Ichirin" later became the brewery's new name.

The brewery follows the concept of "terroir". In 2010, Ume Ichirin began using local rice, except for Yamada Nishiki, which was used for sake submitted to the National Sake Awards and some Daiginjo sake. Since 2020, locally grown Yamada Nishiki has been used to brew premium sake.

Floral nose with solid notes of turpentine. Floral approach, followed by a crescendo of dryness, bitter acidity and a slight aroma of sweetness. Slightly long finish with a refreshingly sour tingle. Light-bodied and easy to drink.
