Amazake is a traditional sweet drink made from rice that has been drunk by Japanese people since the Nara period (710-794 AD).
It is a traditional Japanese beverage made using fermentation like yoghurt, natto, miso and so on.
Fermented foods contain essential substances such as vitamins, glucose and essential amino acids for humans. (It is said to be the drinking yoghurt of the Japanese version)
Amazake contains "water, salt, sugar" in a well-balanced manner and is also called drip infusion.
In the Edo period, it was popular as a nutritious drink of common people's ally.
Long time ago, among the samurai of the Edo period, it seems that drinking Amazake before drinking sake was said to be "a manner of samurai" thanks to the efficacy of "prevention of drunkenness".
Morinaga & Co., released bottled Amazake in 1969 then, canned in 1974.
Continued to be loved by many Japanese customers more than 40 years since its release.
it is the amazake traditional healthy drink which is currently the best selling in Japan.
The deep richness of "sakekasu (sake flake)" and gentle sweetness of "rice kouji (kouji malt)".
It is a traditional Japanese drink that you can drink at ease anytime.
In the study on amazake, it was suggested that continuous drinking of "sake cake" and "sweet sake using" rice koji "can be expected to have good effects on beauty and health.
We love this unchanging handmade taste and its warmth.
It is not "sake" because it is a refreshing drink with less than 1% alcohol.
Please enjoy the original flavor and sweetness of Amazake.
