Establish 1919

AKITA JOZO

It’s a relatively new brewery established in 1919. In 2000, they renovated the brewery and made the size of brewery smaller but 100% air-conditioned, so that they can brew the Sake throughout the year. Always improve the skill and deepen their style and only brew Junmai Sake.

COMMITMENT

We aim to produce the Sake which has roundish and a lot of Umami, but the finish is dry and sharp. It’s a never-ending journey; we are always trying to evolve ourselves and provide beautiful Sake.
