Establish 1865

OKIDAIKICHI HONTEN

Established in 1865, this brewery has more than 150 years of history.

We only use the self-grown rice and the local rice produced by the contracted farmers. Based on the inherited skill, we think the brewing out of the box and continue the trial and errors for seeking the further possibilities of Sake.

COMMITMENT

The philosophy is “Brewing to cherish the nature of village” All the rice we use is organically grown local rice, and the brewery owner himself does farming of rice.

We have 150-years-long inherited skill and knowledge. Based on it, we quantify the brewing which used to be in the black box and try to make the reproducible Sake brewing.
