Takamori aka “Drunken Wagyu” by Nori Namumoto. This particular wagyu originates from Iwakuni farm, home to a production of 200 Takamori cattle - two heads of cattle are exported to the US each year. Not only are the genetics of this cattle exclusive, some clues also lie in its name.

Why is it called Drunken Wagyu? No, these cattle are no fed beer. Instead the cattle are fed a sake byproduct or sake mash from Dassai - Asahi Brewery. The result produces a mild and silky flavor.

Takamori beef is also known for higher unsaturated fatty acids when compared with typical A5 Japanese Wagyu on average. This is regarded as one of the best artisanal wagyu currently offered.

Experience an unparalleled flavor. Try Takamori Drunken Wagyu and see for yourself.

With over 300 brands of wagyu throughout Japan, each with its distinct and unique flavor characteristics, less than 5% of all US imported A5 are labeled as BMS 12 - the highest score given.

How are you packing my product?

Our products are professionally butchered and individually vacuumed sealed in a USDA facility and blast frozen to maintain freshness and allow for consistent quality. We ship using insulated foam containers with ice packs or dry ice - it leaves our facility cold and arrives the same way! Some natural thawing may occur, do NOT panic!

How to: Receiving your shipment

Once ready to consume, please allow your steak(s) to thaw naturally in your refrigerator up to 8-12 hours. Do NOT soak in hot water. If you are short on time, you may leave this to thaw on your kitchen counter - perform at your own risk. (Japanese Wagyu contains a high fat content and will defrost much faster than any other cut of meat). Our steaks are vacuum sealed for freshness, they will last in your freezer for up to 12 months… but honestly, who lets Wagyu sit in their freezer for that long anyway? If you do not on plan on eating the steaks right away, leave them in the freezer until ready.
