A classic sake made using traditional techniques. Made with ground water from Mount Iwaki, it has a smooth and mellow taste. Only a minimal amount of the grain is polished away, bringing out the taste of the rice.

Dry, but full of flavor.

Brewery Information

Saito Shuzo

Brewery located in Tohoku

Komagoshimachi, Hirosaki-shi, Aomori

Established in 1603 and located in the Tsugaru Region of Aomori, Saito Sake Brewing, the creator of Matsumidori, Rokkon, Reihou, and Deka, has won numerous awards. Our current 18th generation head brewer continues to faithfully maintain our dedication to traditional techniques and craftsmanship. Our values include the careful use of limited natural resources and the relentless pursuit of reliability, safety, and health. We are committed to passing on the delicious flavor of authentic SAKE, made using traditional methods that don't rely on machinery, to future generations. Specifically, our policies are to use as much of the whole rice grain as possible, as our ancestors did, thus preserving its natural flavor; to conserve fuel by using efficient production processes; to ensure reliability, safety, and health by using all natural ingredients; and to avoid getting swept up in the trends, instead continuing to provide the same timeless flavor of Japanese SAKE. Although these policies can, at times, require us to invest several times more labor and time than would otherwise be necessary, we are committed to following traditional SAKE brewing. Finally, by using groundwater from the Shirakami Sanchi Region and Mount Iwaki and rice from Aomori, and by putting these ingredients through a strict production process, we create a product that could only be made in our brewery in Hirosaki, Aomori Prefecture. Our philosophy is: "Delicious SAKE that brings joy to those who drink it." We put a lot of craftsmanship and heart into upholding this ideal. The writer Osamu Dazai was exceedingly fond of our SAKE.
