Kin’ichiro Kagi started production of sake in the Yamahai style in the late Meiji era (1868-1912). As Japan entered the Taisho era (1912-1926), he produced the Suehiro Kaeikura as an experimental brew. Kagi’s style of Yamahai brewing has been handed down over the generations at Suehiro. The result is a Yamahai junmai sake with a good balance of both acidity and sweetness.

Brewery Information

Suehiro Shuzo

Brewery located in Tohoku

Nisshimmachi, Aizuwakamatsu-shi, Fukushima

Founded in 1850, the brewery prizes history and tradition, while at the same time always considering changing needs and producing creative and original sake.
Out of a belief that Aizu sake should use Aizu rice, local ingredients are used, and the resulting sake is designed to warm both body and soul of the customer.

Both Kaeikura brewery and Hakasekura brewery took the Gold medal at the All-Japan New Sake Awards of Excellence.
The brewery has also had the highest number of awards at that event of all breweries in Fukushima Prefecture for four years running since 2015.
