This sake stands as a tribute to the brewery's founder, a warrior who fought valiantly near the remnants of Takatenjin Castle.

The Doi Brewery, a beacon of sustainability, harnesses solar power and other renewable resources, ensuring that every bottle of Takatenjin honors its legacy and its commitment to the environment.
