Brewery located in Chugoku-Shikoku
Katsuyama, Maniwa-shi, Okayama
This brewery started business in 1804 at the same site it stands at today.
This sake was originally produced for the royalty of Katsuyama domain, where it obtained its name of “Gozenshu.”
The brewery is located in “Mimasaka,” the old name for northern Okayama, an area with a cold climate and excellent brewers’ rice.
The conditions are so favorable that it was colloquially called “the land of fine Sake.”
While sake from the Inland Sea in the southern part of the prefecture is sweeter, sake here has a brisk and dry taste. In 2007, Maiko Tsuji, the first female master brewer in Okayama, took the reigns. This has led to an invigoration of the brewing team.
Through sake, a range of ideas and cultures intermingle.
Gozenshu’s history has been about a focus on high-quality brews and authenticity, a commitment to passing on sake culture to the next generation.
