Saké Overview

Making great saké takes patience, precision and perseverance. It also takes great yeast. Whether you’re looking to create saké that is light and crisp, rich and funky, or round and aromatic, there’s a style for you.

Our liquid yeast strains are recognized around the world, and we’ve partnered with some of the most successful craft beverage brands. But we’ve never stopped exploring new ways to ensure that every product that leaves our Hood River facility is of the highest quality possible.
