Yomi

Yomi is a new concept created by SakéOne specifically for canned saké. It is wrapped with a white label featuring a striking image of a Japanese mask inspired by mythology and brought to life by a local Portland designer originally from the Aomori Prefecture of Japan. According to Shinto mythology, Yomi means “World of Darkness” or “an Afterlife” where one goes after death. This story inspired the company to create a saké meant to be consumed in our daily “world of darkness” at the end of each day.

Yomi is fruity, refreshing and subtly sweet. It features light notes of red berries, cherry, guava, and mochi with hints of tropical fruit, melon, and grapes. It has an ABV of 13% and pairs with light and medium flavored foods like sushi, street tacos and poke bowls.

Momokawa

The Momokawa offering represents the newest line extension from SakéOne’s pioneering flagship brand. Created by in-house designers, the design features a white canvas with stylized blue accents inspired by an avant-garde form of calligraphy known as zeneisho and the abstract expressionist style of Jackson Pollock.

Momokawa is a medium-dry saké with a balance of soft water notes and flavors of apple and pear, with melon and mild anise on the nose. It is fuller-bodied and made in a slightly drier, more traditional style than Yomi. It has an ABV of 14% and displays the hallmark aromas and flavors fans of Momokawa saké will recognize immediately. Pair it with medium and full-flavored foods like burgers, pizza, spicy Mexican food and hot dogs.

Premium Oregon Craft Cans

Both Yomi and Momokawa are Junmai Ginjo, or super premium level saké made with no distilled alcohol added. They are crafted using premium Sacramento Valley rice milled to 58% of its original size. Removing the outer impurities of the rice grain and focusing on the ideal starch found within each grain results in clean, fruity and floral aromatics. Pristine, abundant Willamette Valley water utilized in the production process is essential to revealing and retaining fruity “ginjo” characteristics. Both products are sulfite-free, gluten-free, vegan and kosher.

 
Oregon

Water

Saké is about 80% water. From a utility standpoint, as long as the water is clean it is generally suitable for brewing saké. However, in premium saké, water composition matters a great deal which is why seasoned saké drinkers can often connect flavor characteristics to unique regions. SakéOne’s founder chose Oregon because he believed that the best quality water for saké brewing is in the Northwest, specifically on the east slope of the coastal range in Forest Grove, Oregon.

 
California

Rice

Through an exclusive partnership, SakéOne sources its saké-friendly Calrose grain from the Sacramento Valley. Calrose is derived from Japanese saké rice and has several qualities that produce saké with more body, higher viscosity, and a long, pleasant finish. This not only gives our styles a regional authenticity, but also aligns closely with our values to be an earth-friendly brewer.
