This brew is carefully prepared at every step, starting with the production of local rice. The inherently rich flavor of Hitogokochi rice, a natural product of this region, is drawn out with rice polished to 80% and prepared as a junmai sake. This brew has a full body that develops into a range of flavors as you drink. The sake can be warmed to further add new dimensions of enjoyment. This sake comes highly recommended and is truly the best way to taste the richness that the Kiso region (Nagano) has to offer.

Nakazen Sake Brewery
Brewery located in Chubu
Fukushima, Kiso-machi Kiso-gun, Nagano
We are a small brewery in the mountains.
Rather than increasing output, we strictly limit our production in order to remain entirely hands-on in the process and improve each step.
The enthusiasm and commitment of the rice growers resonates with us, and we passionately craft our local sake to honor their work.
Our goal is to create a classic sake to soothe the fatigue of hardworking mountain peoples -- a brew that offers peace of mind and a gentle, pleasant taste.
This year, we have revamped our malt room, which is responsible for the signature ingredient that dictates the final taste of the sake.
We want to continue producing sake that lives up to our vision for the best brew.
