Dewazakura is one of the most innovative sake-makers in Japan, using new yeast strains, rice varieties and brewing techniques to craft distinctly original sakes. The brewery’s Oka label, introduced in 1980, is credited with popularising ginjo sakes at a time when few people in Japan had heard of them. 

A soft and fragrant sake with great precision and freshness, it's floral rather than fruity, though there are hints of pear and melon on the long, bright finish.
