Initiative by
a young sake brewery
in a rice-growing town

Okuizumo Syuzo Co., Ltd.

Selling points



Authentic local sake made using only Okuizumo rice and water

POINT1

Made with only local rice and water

  • The town hall took over this historical sake brewery when it went out of business


  • Ingredients strictly limited to local rice and water


POINT2

All products are Junmai-shu

  • Production is limited to Junmai-shu (sake made without brewer’s alcohol) because of the town’s favorable rice production


  • The difference in temperature between day and night creates “hard rice” optimal for sake brewing


POINT3

Also taking on the challenge of making sake with table rice

  • Rebelling against the conventional wisdom that sake made with table rice is low grade, we brew deliciously savory sake made with Nitamai Koshihikari, the local rice brand

Editer's Message


While worrying about “getting lost”, we arrived at a sake brewing winery in a mountain village. The sake makers here always insist on using local rice and water in the manufacture of the best sake.
