Brewery located in Hokuriku
Okayamacho, Agano-shi, Niigata
This brewery was founded in 1839. Located in a central location in the Echigo Plain, a grain-producing region in Niigata, we utilize the fertile nature of this vast region to produce high -quality brewers’ sake rice and water sourced from the abundant and pure and coolclear waters of the Agano River. Drawing on traditional and historical techniques that date to the Edo period, we work tirelessly with the sake to uncover its secrets and put quality first.
We focus on the use of “Gohyakumangoku” rice, among others, and have partnered with local farmers to establish the Brewers’ Sake Rice Growers’ Conference, where we research ways of cultivating higher quality rice and using the best ingredients in better sake production. In recent years, we have also undertaken production of “Koshi Tanrei” rice in the area, which we use in brewing dDaiginjo and other sake. We are committed to brewing locally and using local ingredients.
These efforts have paid off, and we have continued to garner accolades both in Japan and foreign countries.overseas. Since 1994, we have awardedwon the Gold Medal at the Monde Selection for twenty-three years running. In the product category, our “Special Daiginjo Sasaya Mozaemon” has awardedtaken the Grand Prix since 2006 for eleven years running, and our “Daiginjo Hakuryu” and “Junmai Daiginjo Hakuryu” have awardedtaken the Gold Medal for ten consecutive years since 2007.
