Miyagi

■Tanaka Sake Brewery Location Tanaka Sake Brewery is located in "Kami-machi, Miyagi Prefecture." Located in the northwestern part of the Sendai Plain, Kami-machi is a fertile area where melted snow from the Ou Mountains constantly flows into the region. ■History of Tanaka Sake Brewery In 1789, the year of the French Revolution, Rinbei Tanaka, the most famous draper and money changer in the Date clan, founded the Tanaka Sake Brewery in this town blessed with water and rice. ■Passing Down the Art of Sake Brewing For more than 230 years since its establishment, Tanaka Sake Brewery has inherited traditional sake brewing techniques (kimoto and yamahai), using only the best quality water and rice. Tanaka Sake Brewery continues to use handmade processes, such as the koji tray method for all koji, traditional oke steaming for rice, and cedar heating for the sake mother, to produce "sake with assertive quality," and has become a brewery trusted by the community while maintaining the traditional sake brewing process. ■New Challenges We contribute to the local community by purchasing half of our sake rice from local contract farmers. Recently, we have obtained "kosher certifications(KLBD)” and "vegan certification" and are in the process of obtaining "organic" certifications.                              Recently, we have begun efforts to export our sake overseas, and it has already become one of the most imported sake brands in Australia.

Yorozu-feb2

Yamanashi

YOROZUYA JOZOTEN, a sake brewery founded in 1790 in the town of Fujikawa, Minamikoma district of Yamanashi Prefecture, a land rich in nature overlooking the magnificent Mt. Fuji. Founded on the idea that "When it comes to local Sake, we want to keep to our local Sake rice, water source, and people", we have local Sake rice farm contractors as well as our own in-house rice milling, and so roughly 90% of the Sake rice used is taken from local suppliers in Fujikawa Town. Our Sake brewing process begins from rice harvesting, which we polish local Sake rice in-house and brew using the finest underground water source at the southernmost peak of the Southern Alps. The name of our top representative label brand "Shunnouten" was taken from the elegant meaning of "Spring Warbler Song", which is named after the praising song by the famous Waka poet Akiko Yosano who visited us and sang of great affirmation of the flavor, aroma, and presentation of this Sake brand. The quality of the Sake is refreshing with a good sharpness, and drinks dry, so we are particularly persistent on making pure rice Sake that retains the flavor of the rice. It's not a spotlight liquor label, but it's a liquor that puts the drinker in the spotlight. In 2019, the label was the gold prize winner at the Warmed Sake contest, the runner up silver prize of the best design category at the 1st Milan SAKE Challenge, and silver prize in the pure rice Sake category as well.

SakeGene2023-2

Tokyo

Sake Generation, Inc. Led by a female Japanese entrepreneur, we set out to craft a premium sparkling sake that would challenge the preconceived notions of both traditional sake and sparkling wine – something a little different, for those who pride themselves on living their lives a little differently. Because we believe that sake can be Japanese in origin, but international in its appeal; that sake can go beyond the sushi menu, bubbling up alongside traditional sparkling wines everywhere from birthdays, to weddings, to brunch, to the little everyday celebrations that make life truly special. ICHIDO In Japanese, “ICHIDO” means, "once". As in, “You only live once, so live life your own way”. We created ICHIDO Japanese Sparkling Sake for those who celebrate life on their own terms. The result is an artful fusion of time-honored sake brewing techniques with traditional champagne-making methods that is anything but traditional. Smooth and slightly sweet with a delicate opaqueness, it is a beautiful balance of classic craftsmanship and modern creativity that is best served chilled and perfect for any celebratory occasion.

Gassan. This soft water produces a delicate and pleasant taste, and has been used for generations to brew sake here.

Before the sake brewing business, our ancestors were merchants who used the clear water of the Sagae River to sell safflower and rice. The name of the first generation of the family was Juubei, and it is from this origin that we have named our brand "Benihana-ya Juubei".  Our sake is internationally recognized as a Geographical Indication GI YAMAGATA certified sake.

Sakeboys2023-2

Fukuoka

SAKEBOYS promotes Kyushu sake to the world. Notably, our sake differs in flavour and taste from those sakes from the Tohoku and Kanto regions. After sugar was brought to Hirado in Nagasaki by the Portuguese during the 16th century, sweet soy sauce became the established style of soy sauce in Kyushu. So it was that many breweries started to brew sweet sake to match this sweet soy sauce. We believe that Kyushu sake stands up to even the strongest flavoured foods, each sip providing a deep sense of satisfaction. Moreover, each prefecture has its own distinct style of sake: Fukuoka Prefecture, with its light and dry examples; Saga Prefecture, its sakes having a rich, sweet profile; and Oita Prefecture preferring light, sweet sake. We invite you to explore the sake of Kyushu, and to compare them with those of Honshu, to understand the true sense of individuality of our region.

UZUME  Hizou Junmai <Sake>  300ml  Standard price in Japan ¥3,000

This "hizosyu" has been aged for a long time at low temperature in the bottle. The slightly amber hue and the flavors that meld together in the bottle give the impression of a gentle passage of time.
When you sip the sake, you will taste a delicate, light, yet complex flavor that has been developed over a long period of time. This delicacy and lightness can only be achieved by storage and aging in a low-temperature environment, where temperature changes are minimal. Only sake of the highest quality and flavor that can withstand long-term aging is selected for storage and aging.

The mild aged taste that cannot be experienced with new sake is a flavor and taste that has the same potential as Japanese whiskey.

The Party Goddess UZUME series consists of three types: Elegant, Traditional, and for Relaxation.
Relaxation is the newest of the series, a sake that brings out the "sweetness" of the rice. It is more semi-dry in taste than simply sweet, with a sweetness that is hard to believe it is sugar-free, while the acidity balances the flavor. Therefore, it goes well with rich cream dishes and dishes characterized by sweetness and acidity. It is made with sake rice produced within 12 miles of the brewery in cooperation with farmers, which contributes to local industry as an SDGs and sustainable initiative. Standards are set for each grade and classified into five quality grades. Level 5, the highest grade, has no added sugar and produces the highest level of sweetness in sake. Level 3 is the most well-balanced sake, with the sweetest taste tempered by acidity, and is useful not only as a mid-meal sake, but also as an aperitif, after-meal sake, or as a sauce ingredient.

Chiyoiku-2023-2

Gifu

The quality of water has a great effect directly on the quality of sake. In Hashima city between Japan's two great rivers, the Kiso and Nagara rivers, Chiyogiku brewery uses Nagara river's deeply purified crystal-clear water pumped up from 128m underground. The water is very soft and pure containing moderate amount of minerals, and that makes the mellow taste of Chiyogiku Sake. Founded in 1738, Chiyogiku's ""Small brewing"" is taken place throughly by hands, starting from the process of washing rice, making Koji, and making Shubo. Especially the process of making Koji is done by the traditional and time-consuming ""Futa Koji"" method, to pass on the traditional method from the ancient times to the next generation. In “Large brewing”, Chiyogiku tries to keep the rice as untouched as possible in order to keep the complex fermentation in ideal condition, enabling Chiyogiku to maintain the quality of sake stable. Chiyogiku is also the pioneer in making organic sake. In 1998, Chiyogiku launched a project, “Hashima Experience”, with the group of local farmers to grow organic rice using rice-duck. Instead of using chemical herbicides, ducks released in the rice fields eat the weeds and feeds the rice seedlings. In the project, the participants including children experience the organic farming, harvesting, and the sake-making. It is held every year with the hope to create an opportunity to feel the gifts of nature and think about our lives in harmony and coexistence with nature.

Nagano

In 2021, we restored the highest altitude brewery in Japan – a historic brewery established in 1793 but dormant since 2012 – into suginomori brewery. The brand name narai is derived from the town of Narai-juku where we brew our sake, and expresses our hope that our sake can help invigorate the historic town as a tourist destination.The key characteristics of narai are its use of natural mountain water, locally produced sake rice, and a manual brewing process by the hands of our master brewer. The water used to brew narai, which is vital to the texture of the sake, is the natural mountain water of Narai-juku that has long supported the daily lives of its local residents.The rice used for narai, which determines the taste of the sake, has been carefully grown by Farm Ichimaru, a farmer in Azumino, Nagano.Finally, we brew our sake in a small space of just 250㎡. While typical breweries use large tanks (3000 to 8000L) for mass production, we have scaled down to use smaller tanks of 900 to 1800L. Although this may limit our production capacity, this minimal and refined production process ensures that each batch can be lovingly and efficiently crafted under our master brewer’s watchful eye. At suginomori brewery, we are making sake with a desire to deliver the charms of Japan to people around the world who have yet to discover them. By delivering narai to the world – a Japanese sake that expresses the blessings of Nagano’s beautiful nature – we hope to weave a treasured part of Japanese culture into the future.

narai - kinmon <Sake>  720ml  Standard price in Japan ¥5,000

Water - The water used to brew narai, which is vital to the texture of the sake, is the natural mountain water of Narai-juku that has long supported the daily lives of its local residents. The water comes from a spring located near the watershed of the Shinano River and Kiso River, and is characterized by its super-soft texture, with a hardness level of less than 25. There are six water fountains in Narai-juku, and we use the mountain water from the same stream as the water fountain “Yokomizu,” located right across from our brewery. 

Rice - The rice used for narai, which determines the taste of the sake, has been carefully grown by Farm Ichimaru, a farmer in Azumino, Nagano. 
Kinmon-nishiki is a rare sakamai variety, produced through difficult cultivation techniques in only select areas of Nagano Prefecture.
A rice variety produced through cross-breeding the Takane-nishiki and Yamada-nishiki varieties. While born in the 1950-60s as an original sakamai of Nagano, demand later decreased as it did not match the cultivation and brewing techniques and taste trends of Japanese sake at the time. In recent years, however, as the only one of the five Nagano sakamai varieties with a direct lineage to Yamada-nishiki, known as the “king of sakamai,” this rice variety has garnered more attention due to its great taste potential. Its complex taste and elegant acidity also contribute to its potential to turn into a wonderful sake to pair with food. Kinmon-nishiki is a rare sakamai specialty that is only produced in select areas of Nagano, such as Kijimidaira.

The flavors are cohesive and clear. When steamed, this rice has a sticky texture; this makes it a challenging rice variety to work with, but also gives it a firm structure. When brewed into sake, it seems to hold this full-bodied flavor. (Master brewer Irie’s notes)

Taste: semi sweet, body: semi-light, light smell. Good with main dish.

narai - sankei <Sake>  720ml    Standard price in Japan ¥5,000

Water - Same as Kinmon

Rice - Sankei-nishiki is a sakamai variety increasingly used over the past 3 to 4 years due to its large shinpaku, or “white heart” – the starchy center core of each rice grain.
The name “山恵 (sankei)” is derived from the image of this rice variety as a “'blessing (恵) from the mountains (山) of Shinshu.” It is a young sakamai variety, only recently registered in 2020. Sankei-nishiki is known for its large shinpaku – the core of starch that occupies the center of a rice grain – which the koji-kin (mold) feed on to form rice koji, a crucial step of the brewing process. In fact, the Sankei-nishiki variety was introduced through cross-breeding for the purpose of producing larger shinpaku, as the shinpaku of Miyama-nishiki was gradually growing smaller due to repeated recycling of rice seeds. As a result, it is said that Sankei-nishiki has a higher shinpaku manifestation rate than that of Miyama-nishiki.

The flavors seem to change rhythmically, from the moment it enters your mouth to when you finish. When steamed, this rice has a fluffy texture. Because the taste is rather light, the aromas tend to leave more of an impression. A sake that flows and changes over time. (Master brewer Irie’s notes)
