What is SAKEMARU?
SAKEMARU is a sake subscription service that delivers bottles of fresh seasonal sake from different breweries in Japan straight to you. The service only offers unfiltered and unpasteurised “nama” type of sake which is characterised by its natural, powerful taste.
What inspired SAKEMARU?
When CEO Taichi Abe experienced unpasteurised and unfiltered sake nouveau for the first time at a brewery he was surprised by the fresh, aromatic flavour of the sake. It was different from the sake that he usually drank which was normally easily available. He wanted to share this taste and experience with sake fans around the world but quickly realised that it the sake was difficult for them to obtain due to its limited quantity and must-remain-chilled nature.
Hence SAKEMARU was born.
