The Yachiya family has been crafting sake since 1583, originally made exclusively for the leading general of the Kaga region, Maeda Toshiie. When Maeda moved to Kanazawa City, he brought Mr. Yachiya with him, and in 1628, the brand name, “Kagatsuru” was established giving a nod to the Kaga region itself and Tsuru, the Japanese name for crane, believed to live for a thousand years, bringing good fortune and happiness.
