A new sensational SAKE
created with botanical ingredients from Japan.

Aiming to make the “ultimate drink during meals” that can be paired with dishes from all over the world, we have created a new sensational SAKE that incorporates botanical fragrances and flavors.

The name “FONIA” is derived from the Latin word “sinfonia” which means harmony.
By fermenting both the rice and botanical ingredients, this botanical SAKE has a unique fragrance and taste unlike any other Japanese sake.

The diffusing fragrance made from citruses, herbs, and spices from Japan combined with the acidity and umami of rice, elegantly spices up dishes from around the world.

* We are using botanical components as secondary ingredients within the traditional methods of sake production, however, according to the laws of the Liquor Tax Act it is classified as “Other brewed beverages”.

Method

Adding botanical ingredients during the fermentation process of sake

The extravagant fragrance derived from botanical ingredients.
By adding these botanical ingredients during the fermentation of the moromi (raw unfiltered sake), it creates a new fermentation process within the production of sake, which is different from liqueurs that add secondary ingredients at the very end.

The rice used, which is called “Kameno-o”, is free from any fertilisers or pesticides. The aromas of ginger, sansho (Japanese pepper), and yuzu are added to the unique acidic flavor produced by the mizumoto preparation method, which dates back to the Muromachi period, and the strong umami flavor of the rice, ultimately creating a spicy, herbal flavor.
