About Dassai Blue

Here at Dassai Blue, we craft sake to brighten your life. We strive to create the highest quality sake for our customers, so they can simply enjoy its taste and flavors.

In 1984, Mr. Hiroshi Sakurai inherited the family sake business. Through determination and perseverance, he successfully transformed Dassai into a beloved and globally acclaimed sake, winning the hearts of people worldwide.

Dassai Blue was an idea born in Japan but now brewed in New York. With our new brewery in Hyde Park, we are hoping to introduce and share our sake with even more people around the world. We strive to educate people on how our artisans craft our sake. We strive to make our sake the very best.

The goal of Dassai Blue is to brew a more superior product than our sake in Japan. We look to the proverb about the indigo plant. The dye possesses a deeper hue of blue than the very indigo plant from which it originates, symbolizing the transformative power of art and craftsmanship to elevate and enrich the natural world's inherent beauty. Dassai Blue will transcend expectations and reach deeper than ever before.
