SUMIKAWA SHUZO

Current brew master learned brewing in Takagishuzo which produces “Juyondai(十四代)”. As a proof of his potential skill, Mr.Takagi who is the owner of Takagishuzo gave his signature brewery rice “Sakemirai”.

Very a few breweries can brew sake with this rice. He brought the growth of this brewery and the quantity of sake became several times in 15 years. However, Sumikawashuzo was flooded in 2013 and brewery and equipments were mostly damaged.

The production capacity has not been recovered yet, but the quality of sake is much higher than before and put all effort to satisfy the customers who support us in severe time.

COMMITMENT

We have been pursuing the sake with transparency. Tranparency we mean is naturalness, simpleness and pureness. Our final goal is to produce sake taste like a water goes through rice plant.
