Taru means barrel in Japanese. In the past, sake was aged, stored and transported in barrels made of the wood of cedar. Therefore, former sake always smelled of the wood of these barrels. However, since cedar barrels are expensive and not suitable for mass production, tarusake disappeared from the market over time. In 1964, the Choryo Shuzo revived the tarusake in search of a nostalgic aroma and maintains its traditional production method to this day.
This Tarusake is an authentic sake characterized by the refreshing aroma of Yoshino cedar. The sake is drawn from the barrel and bottled when this aroma reaches its peak for optimal enjoyment.
