Premium Junmai sake created in partnership with Benihana with an earthy flavor profile.

Kirk Spahn and Trenton Ulicny met while working on a graduate school project together at Columbia University in New York. Spahn had researched the significance of rice wines and beverages while studying East Asian culture at Dartmouth. In 2004 they founded their new beverage company that brings a modern, American sensibility to traditional Japanese premium Sake.

The Benihana restaurant chain has been bringing Japanese-style teppanyaki cuisine to the world since 1964. Sake is THE beverage of choice with teppanyaki, making Benihana the perfect partner for TYKU. TYKU Tokubetsu Benihana Sake is a Junmai sake created in partnership with Benihana. It is an exceptionally pure Sake made from a special blend of Sake rice, ultra-pure water, koji, and yeast at the Umenoyado Brewery in Nara, Japan. It’s served at 12% ABV in brilliant red decanter with absolutely no additives of any kind.


Smartass Corner: 
Premium Sake is made from polished rice — wearing away the outer layers to reach more of the sweeter starches in the inside. Sake made from rice that has been polished to remove 30% or more of the outer grain is called "Junmai."
