Brewery Information

Ayumasamune Shuzo

Brewery located in Hokuriku

Saruhashi, Myoko-shi, Niigata

The brewery focuses on producing sake that is in harmony with nature.
Founded in 1875. The brewery got its start when Hikozaemon Iiyoshi used a high-quality source of local water known for its endless supply.
These natural waters continue to flow forth below our brewery.
Every hour, six tons of water are produced. This natural underground water source courses beneath the mountains and is closely tied to our brewery.
Rich natural fonts of water are used to produce our sake, which has a smooth mouthfeel and gentle sweetness. This sake is mellow, but with a clean finish. Ayu Masamune is located in Saruhashi, Myoko, an area with some of the highest snowfall in Niigata Prefecture. During the cold fermentation season, the area is covered in snowbanks exceeding 2 meters in height.
This snow coverage ensures a temperature of 5 degrees Celsius within the brewery, creating the cleanest and most stable climate for sake brewing, which requires fine regulation of these conditions.
Amidst these natural environs, Ayu Masamune selects only the best local rice from within the prefecture and uses the master brewers’ skills to produce fine sake.
This clear mountain gorge area is home to abundant snows and water, with our brewers giving their all to produce our beverages.
