The Grammy Award-winning French rock band Phoenix collaborated with Tatenokawa brewery to release a new project, but this time it isn’t a new record, it is a new sake!

The project was very much a labour of love for the two parties, who were introduced by the late Toshiro Kuroda. Kuroda-san dedicated himself to teaching others about sake & Japanese cuisine and it was he who introduced the band to Tatenokawa. Sadly, Mr Kuroda passed away before he could see this sake’s first release, and a portion of the brewery’s profits from sales is donated to the Japanese Red Cross in his name.

Tatenokawa Phoenix has restrained tropical fruit flavours along with plenty of body, umami and acidity. Enjoy with a range of cuisines including roasts, sushi, rich fish & shellfish, oysters, fried foods and soft cheeses.
