Niigata Agricultural Institute, Niigata Sake Institute, and the consortium of Niigata sake breweries spent 15 years to launch a new sake rice variety, called Koshi Tanrei. The rice is grown only in Niigata, only for Niigata sake producers. Ten To Chi gHeaven and Earthh is one of the first Koshi Tanrei-based sakes that have been made commercially available in Japan. Launched in US in 2011.
