Crafted by the Fuij Brewery in the town of Izumo, Joto Yuzu is a blend of sake and Yuzu juice from Yuzu fruit that is grown locally. The Fuji Brewery was founded in 1939 and is managed by the 3rd generation of the Imaoka family. Yuzu is a prized Japanese citrus fruit that has the sweet and tart flavors of mandarin orange, Meyer lemon and Key lime. Blended with sake, Joto Yuzu is a delicious balance of sweetness and acidity.

Pronounced tartness, with notes of meyer lemon and mandarin orange. Tart and sweet in the finish.  Best enjoyed on the rocks with a splash of soda. Mixes well to create fantastic cocktails.

Brewery:

The Izumo Taisha is one of Japan’s most cherished shinto shrines, and the centerpiece of this small town. Mount Fuji is Japan’s national symbol. The brewery named their sake “Izumo Fuji” to celebrate both symbols, local and national. 

In Japan, shrines have specific powers for which visitors pray. Izumo Taisha’s power is “en musubi,” “the tying of bonds.” Visiting the Izumo Taisha can bring you positive relationships in romance and in business. Locals joke that so many singles come to pray that they might not leave alone!

Toshi Imaoka, the brewmaster and director of the brewery, makes his sake in the spirit of Izumo Taisha. He hopes his sake will bring people together to form long bonds, with his sake, too!
