Sake Sommelier Comment
This highly-celebrated SAKE is well balanced and diverse enough to satisfy all palates. The flavor is not too sweet, but not too dry, boasting a medium body and vivid aroma that doesn’t overpower the senses. Its almost perfectly clear appearance is reminiscent of the land in which it is brewed. The use of Akitakomachi rice produces a SAKE that should be enjoyed with close friends and loved ones for an exquisitely refined experience.
Ryozeki Shuzo -Akita-
Brewery located in Hokuriku
Ryozeki got its start as Ito Niemon, which was founded in 1874.
The historic brewery of over 135 years got its start in trade with Kaga Domain (present-day Ishikawa Prefecture) in the late Warring States period through early Edo period, where it was given the name Niemon. Still today, in Yuzawa, it is referred to as Kaga-ni.
In the late Meiji period, the brewery spared no effort to develop a proprietary low-temperature, long-term fermentation process, as well as the Ito-style skylight. These results have enabled the brewery to obtain numerous awards, starting with the first prize at the first All Japan Spirits Appraisal Conference, and then many accolades since.
Actively sharing this expertise and techniques with the industry, the Ryozeki style came to influence the Akita and Tohoku styles of brewing.
Since that time, we have placed developing increasingly better quality first and foremost, while at the same time pursuing ties with our local region.
We do not hire brewers from outside, instead training our own staff in-house to retain a closed pool of talent.
