What's MARUMOTO SHUZO
30 years experience for growing brewery rice, 150 years experience for brewing sake!
We have been brewing sake for more than 150 years since the 1st generation of Kanomatsu established this brewery. When we established, this area was called Shimizu means springs beautiful water. Behind the brewery, there is Chikurinji moutain which foot is designated as a nature reserve area. We benefit from this wild nature and brew sake with using those rich and natural ingredients.
We consider brewery rice as the most important ingredient for brewing. We bought some rice from local farmers before. The apprearance looked always similar, however the component of rice was different by its producing year and area.
If their brewery rice doesn't fit the local environment, it is impossible to bring the potential out, even though we use the highest quality of brewery rice. That's why we started to grow the brewery rice on our own.
It is not common in Japan, however, it's still natural for us to pursue our ideal taste.
Sake people naturally cotton to is our ideal taste. We will commit its cleaness and smoothness.
