It is only brewery remains in Taku city of Saga prefecture. We passed the baton to our 6 generation a few years ago. After studying brewing in Tokyo and Yamaguchi, he came back and started brewing with his own style at the age of 28.
Since it is a very small family-run brewery, he stopped brewing sake added other alcohol and started to produce only junmai type sake.
The quantity of sake we can produce is limited, however we can take care the quality of sake by each bottle.
We brew sake very carefully with using the local ingredients.
We want to produce sweet and clean typical Saga prefecture's sake with only using the traditional tools.
Our brew master is still very young and less experienced than the other traditional breweries. However, we take this point seems negative as positive factor to be more competitive.
He can give a try to discover the new possibilities of sake without having the stereotypes. His challenge has just started, however his brand-new brands are rapidly favored by core sake funs.
To improve the quality more and more, we are analyzing the everyday brewing data.
Still looking for our own style. Until we built our solid style, not going to apply for competitions.
