NAMAZAKE. We also export namazake (or nama, for short). Nama is unpasteurized sake which is livelier, fresher, and often more fragrant than pasteurized sake. Most sake is aged 6 to 12 months prior to release, but namazake is freshly pressed and released as soon as the brewing process is complete. Namazake is therefore the freshest sake possible and available only during a small window of time each season. Since namazake is unpasteurized, it must be kept refrigerated at all times and it is best enjoyed in the first few months after release. Each brewing season, our exclusive US importer, Vine Connections, offers a small allocation of namazake from eSake's brewers. Click here to learn more about Vine Connections Namazake offerings.

Vine Connections is a California-based importer of fine sake and wine. It now distributes premium Japanese sake to select restaurants and retailers in 49 states. For product details and taste profiles, just click the English bottles above. Some products are available for online purchase at
