Anime Sake set
In collaboration with three popular Tatsunoko Productionsanime works. This is an authentic Japanese sake that brings back memories ofthe classic anime during the 70's such as "Yatterman," "TheGenie Family" and "Science Ninja Team Gatchaman.

This is the world's best sake to go with meat, as recognizedby restaurants specializing in meat dishes. This sake was created incollaboration with "29ON," a high-end, member-only restaurant specializingin pairing low-temperature cooked meat and sake. By using a specialmanufacturing method, it has a complex and delicious flavor that is unbeatablewith any meat.
Liquor Innovation's effort
There are many sake breweries that are technologicallyproficient but have not yet gained market recognition. There are a variety ofreasons for this, such as a decline in domestic consumption of sake, in lack ofstaff to run the family business, and limitations of the industry'sdistribution system. In addition, historic sake breweries are closing down inrecent years. In order to overcome this situation, Liquor Innovation hasadopted a business model called "SPL" (*1), which covers everythingfrom planning and production all the way to distribution and sales. To date, wehave signed partnership agreements with about 60 breweries across Japan andhave produced approximately 160 types of original products with them utilizingour SPL business model.
*The term SPA was used in the apparel industry, referring to a sales modelthat vertically integrates manufacturing to retailing. And SPL was developed bychanging "apparel " to "liquor".
The concept of KURAND is "A constant stream ofwonderful sake encounters". In the future, we will form partnerships with sake breweries across Japan todevelop and sell original products, mainly sake, through an E-commerce service,with the aim of becoming a platform that connects customers with sake breweriesnationwide. There are sake breweries that do not appear in the market due totraditional distribution limitations, but they are working very hard incrafting their own sake to produce a better product. We collaborate with themfrom the beginning production process to marketing and sales of the products.At KURAND, we value the "story" of each sake brewery and wish todeliver to our customers through our directly managed stores, E-commerceplatform and our partnership restaurants.
