Yamada Shoten is a very small brewery in Gifu, making ultra-handcrafted and traditional style sake.  Like their ancestors who did not have access to modern brewing technology, the Yamada family mills their own rice in-house, and they brew at ambient temperatures without heating or cooling controls.  The high polishing rate gives this sake a defined fruit and floral expression while still offering rich umami. “Mukashi No Manma” means “just like the olden days” since they haven’t changed the way they’ve made their sake.
