Tsurunoe is a very traditional, small brewery founded in 1794. It was originally intended for making miso and soy sauce. The water is classically soft, and they use only locally grown rice. The reflection of their technique is to brew a sake that begins with a big mouthfeel, that lasts long and slowly, beautifully fading away in the mouth. Aizu Chujo sakes are typically aged slightly before release, and this process allows the sake to soften, become more flavorful and slightly sweeter.
