Nagasaki

Genkai Distillery has been exporting shochu overseas since 2005. Since 1900, Genkai Distillery have continued our dedication to authentic barley shochu on the beautiful, romantic Iki Island. The island is blessed with an abundance of spring water and bountiful plains perfect for cultivating barley and rice. We bring together these key ingredients and through the synergy of innovation and techniques introduced to the content 500 years ago crafts them into a timeless barley shochu with global appeal. And now we are building upon that DNA with a new brand of Japanese Spirits tailor made for the global market. Inspired by Shochu But NOT Shochu A New Unique Brand of Japanese Spirits.  The development of the TAMESABURO series began with a request from an overseas drinker and business partner, who said, “I don’t understand why you would take the time and trouble to distill sake and then sell it at 25% abv. It’s a waste of time and money.”Tamesaburo answers this call.Crafted like a shochu but with a much higher alcohol strength and more enhanced flavours to create the ultimate Japanese Spirit for the global market. Why not add a taste of Japanese island paradise to your bar today!

Hyogo

In 1711, Ozeki was established by the first Chobei Osakaya of the Osabe family in Imazu, Nishinomiya City, Hyogo Prefecture. Our head office is still located there. Since its founding, Ozeki has enjoyed longstanding and widespread patronage as a choice sake from Nada. In 2011, thanks to this support, Ozeki marks its 300th anniversary. Known as a sake region, Nada (formally called Imazu Village in Muko County, Settsu Province) is blessed with so-called Miyamizu, or groundwater originating in the Rokko mountain system. The region is also ideal for rice production, including Yamada-nishiki, the renowned sake rice. In the Edo period, it's said, kudari-zake (sake shipped from Kyoto and Osaka to Edo) from Nada and transported from Imazu port to Edo by taru-kaisen (cargo-vessels carrying sake barrels) was both fresher and tastier than sake transported by land and was prized as a premium sake. While many of the old documents of this time were lost in the large-scale air raids in the last days of the war, the unrelenting pursuit of the craftsmen's skills found exclusively at Ozeki and a passion for sake-making have been handed on to successive generations of craftspersons, bringing Ozeki to this day. Japanese sake embodies a food culture passed on from antiquity. We believe sake emerges from an ongoing dialogue between the sake maker and natural elements, like the koji mold. The fermentation techniques we've cultivated represent an exciting area of technology, one that promises numerous unexplored treasures beyond Japanese sake. Lifestyles and consumer demands have diversified in recent years, and the pace of change in lifestyles and consumer demands have accelerated. Despite these changes, drawing on both new perspectives and the wisdom and skills of our predecessors, we at Ozeki remain committed to proposing new products to customers that will help them lead healthy, joyful lives.

Yamagata

About Takenotsuyu Sakagura : The Brewery Mt. Haguro, in the middle of the “Three Dewa Mountains”, is well known amongst Japan’s holy places as the main for the Haguro sect of Shugendo, a form of mountain asceticism practiced in Japan that incorporates both the Shinto religion and Buddhism. Our brewery is located in the village of Haguro, which sits at the entrance to the Dewa Shinto shrine, and has since the Nara era been protected by these practitioners of Shugendo. When it was ordered that Shinto and Buddhism be clearly separated after the Meiji restoration in 1868, it was these Shugendo monks that led opposition to this. Originally, our brewery, founded in 1858, was one of many that brewed sake for use in the several annual ceremonies performed by these monks. Starting with our founder, who doubled as the master brewer, we have continued on as a sake brewer and in 1924 we carried the Main Sakagura of Three Dewa Mountains to here with traditional Good Yeast. And we formally incorporated as a company. Takenotsuyu, which means “Bamboo Dew,” is both our company name and the name of the main brand name we use, but its origins are not clear. However, bamboo has been produced in this area has from long ago, and there were many that would cut the bamboo from around the farms here and sell it. Even today, the surrounding bamboo cover our brewery, providing shade that keeps it cool in the summer. It is thought, and then, that what was once known as “that brewery that is surrounded by bamboo forest and makes good sake” eventually became known as “Takenotsuyu.” The Shonai region of Yamagata has long been one of Japan’s premier grain-producing regions, blessed with a good climate and lush nature. All of the water we use in brewing comes from a 300 meter-deep well located on our property that provides water that has flowed down from the “three Dewa mountains”. As for the rice we use for brewing, our brewers, including both our master brewer and his assistants, work together with members of the Haguro Sake Rice Research Group, and this group grows more sake rice than anywhere else in Yamagata. Currently, we are growing nine types of sake rice: “Kame no O”,“Kyou no Hana”,“Haguro”,“Kairyo-Sjinko”,“Miyama-Nishiki”, “Dewa Sansan”,“Dewa no Sato”,“Dewa Kiraly” and “Yuki Megami”. Sake brewing based on our unique rice-growing data means that since we know personally the producer that grows the rice for each tank that we brew, it is possible for use to make individual adjustments for each tank, and precisely prepare the raw materials so as to maximally benefit the fermentation process. The “three Dewa Mountains” are steeped in a lush natural environment. By striking a perfectly balanced fermentation in the successful fusion between traditional brewing techniques and the latest technology, maturing the sake in a stable environment for the appropriate period of time, we make sake that can be enjoyed across a wide range of temperatures, with plenty of flavor yet a clean finish, in what could be considered a new type of flavor profile called “rich yet light.” Our regular sake “Seishu Takenotsuyu” is made with locally grown rice and does not use any added sugars, flavorings or additives of any kind. Also, the alcohol we add to our honjozo - just like that added to our daiginjo - is made entirely from rice. We prepare the koji using in small trays for not only our contest sake, but also for all of our “Hakuro Suishu” line of products, as well as our “Junmai Takenotsuyu” sake as well. All fourteen of our brewing craftsmen are proficient in these methods. Because of the teamwork on the part of our brewers, our koji exerts a huge and positive influence on our brewing, and because we use detailed data to control our yeast starter and allow complete fermentation of the fermenting mash, we are able to mature all of our sake without any charcoal filtering at all. We also use a method of pressing sake in which the fermented mash is poured into cloth bags and tied hanging to bamboo poles, from which the liquid fermented sake drips down. This is called “shizuku sake,” and presents the most pure flavors of any sake. In the cold of the middle of winter, about seven days after sake has been pressed in this way, we remove fallen sediment and we bottle the sake. We pasteurize the sake one bottle at a time by gently showering it with hot water, and then chilling it quickly immediately afterward. Each sake product is stored in a refrigerator at a temperature that suits that product, awaiting proper maturation. It is then stored at freezing temperature until shipment. It is sake with a soft fullness, a smooth clarity, and a clean finish. With a solid rice-like goodness that spreads out, our intention is to provide our customers a glass of sake that brings them happiness. Shonai is a culinary Shangri-la blessed with ocean, mountains and plains. Nothing is better than sustenance gathered from local sources in our immediate environments, and we hope you will enjoy real nihonshu for your health during family get-togethers with such comforting food.

Tokyo

Vision:SAKE to the World Led by a female Japanese entrepreneur, we set out to craft a premium ICHIDO 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 Sparkling SAKE is the clean alternative to wine with 7-15% alcohol by volume, but Gluten-free, Sulfite-free, Tannin-free, and five times less acidity than wine. It made from only Japanese natural ingredients – premium non-GMO rice, pure soft water, yeast, and handmade koji and therefore best matched not only with Japanese cuisine such as Wagyu and Sushi, but also with any seafoods. ICHIDO contains the best finest bubbles created by secondary fermentation and the new rich taste discovered with world-wide communication. As a result, ICHIDO won gold/silver medals at worldwide competition – Feminalise and Kuramaste at France, Milano Sake Challenge, CIVRE at Spain and so on. (See attached ppt)

Kagoshima

Kokuto shochu is a distilled spirit made exclusively in Amami Islands, Kagoshima, Japan. What is kokuto shochu? “Kokuto” refers to specially refined brown sugar and “shochu” is a distilled spirit made mainly in Southern Japan. In short, kokuto shochu is a distilled spirit made from brown sugar. While the other shochu distillers outside Amami are using sweet potato, barley, or rice as their main ingredients, kokuto shochu is made uniquely from brown sugar. We, the Machida team, share a common goal in that we want to share Amami’s exquisite culture and nature with the world. By handcrafting and distributing our kokuto shochu, we can express Amami’s beauty and spirit. [Nankai Group] Paul and Mai Nakayama went on their honeymoon in the spring of 2015 to Amami, Japan to visit her parents’ hometown. While at a local bar, Paul and Mai were introduced to a vacuum-distilled craft spirit. It was a black sugar shochu that was so easy to drink and so delicious that they enjoyed quite a bit of it. The next day they took a 12-hour boat ride to visit the distillery and learn more about their new favorite spirit. On the plane back to Los Angeles, Paul and Mai couldn’t stop thinking about their honeymoon shochu and how much their friends in California would love it, too. This was the beginning of Nankai Shochu and our mission to share shochu with friends old and new.

Nankai Gold   <Shochu> 750ml   

 An exceptional blend of the finest expressions of matured and cask-aged kokuto, or “black sugar,” shochu from our distillery on Amami Island, Japan. Elegantly smooth and drinkable, Nankai Gold offers remarkable layers of fruit, floral, and malty aromas with gentle notes of raisins, chocolates and honey. Enjoy this rare and exquisite spirit neat or on the rocks.Nankai Gold is a 43% ABV blend of artisan black sugar shochus single-distilled from black sugar (80%) and rice (20%). It is produced exclusively by our distillery on Amami Island, Japan. Each shochu in the blend is handcrafted from only four natural ingredients: sugarcane, rice, koji, yeast, and water. A portion of our blend is single-distilled via vacuum distillation to create a smooth and delicious finish. Vacuum stills lower the boiling point of alcohol by half, resulting in a softer, gentler distillation. Our artisans masterfully finish our select shochus in American white oak and French Limousin casks. Each shochu is aged up to 5 years before being blended into Nankai Gold. Unlike whiskey, shochu uniquely uses “koji” in the fermentation process. shochu is also single-distilled to preserve the luscious flavors and aromas of the source grain. However, if you’re a fan of Japanese whiskeys, you will love how the beauty of shochu and whiskey making are elegantly combined into one gorgeous bottle. The result is a unique and complex experience worthy of your attention. Best enjoyed however you’d like, but we prefer it on the rocks with a single large cube or neat. We’re also a sucker for a good Old-Fashioned or Highball. Discover what you prefer and go with it.

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.

Ishikawa

A traditional sake brewery that has continued since the middle of the Edo period Founded, 10th year of the treasure calendar, 1760 AD, 262 years since then, we are working hard every day with pride that we continue to brew Japan sake, which is the traditional culture of Japan. If we unravel history, our ancestors were samurai of the Taira family. Yes, our sake is exactly the sake created by the samurai. This sake contains the samurai spirit of Japan. The current tenth generation lord has never forgotten the samurai spirit. The Japan sake brewed by Mr. Du's skilled technique of sticking to water and rice to the point of being strict and uncompromising can be said to be the real sake. The sake that summarizes the history of the Hashimoto family, that sake is "Junmai Daiginjo Tenth Generation"

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 "vegan certification" and are in the process of obtaining "organic" and "kosher" 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.

Old and traditional, Minakuchi Shuzo had the main building doubling as a shop designated as a registered tangible cultural property (structure). Built in 1917, the main building is a two-story wooden house that creates a liberal Taisho era (from the late 1910s to the early 1920s) atmosphere with the exterior plastered and wainscoted and the second floor equipped with western round windows. As a seven-times gold award winner (the very best among the award winners) in the Annual Japan Sake Awards, we produce the “Dogo story” so that visitors from across the world will keep a good memory of Dogo in their heart.

Tokyo

Godo Shusei was established by merging four Shochu companies in Asahikawa city of Hokkaido in 1924. Originally, the company was founded by Mr. Denbei Kamiya. He opened his liquor shop in 1880 and started to produce pure alcohol in 1900 in Asahikawa city as the first indipendent alcohol distillery. Currently, we are producing Pure alcohol in Hokkaido and Shizuoka, producing Sake and Shochu in Hokkaido and producing Plum wines adn Ready-To-Drink canned products etc, in Chiba. In this opportunity, we would like to introduce our Sake made in Hokkaido and Plum wines made in Chiba. Especially for Sake producing, Hokkaido is one of the best area to brew, because its cool climate gives an advantage for lower temperature fermentation which gives Sake floral, clear and smooth taste. Plum wines production in Chiba has a long history more than 80 years and our matured technique express the best balance between acidity and sweetness in Plum wines. We hope that our alcohol beverages can be a unique and typical taste of Sake in Hokkaido and authentic Plum wines for the US consumers.
