What's AZAKURA SHUZO

Yokoteshi of Akita pref is well-known as heavily snowy place in Japan. Azakura Shuzo is only brewery located in this area.

Thanks to the heavy snow, the dust in air is cleared up and the brewery itself is totally covered by the snow. Since the snow chills the entire air of brewery, we can brew sake in low temperature stably.

Also, this area is famous for producing fine brew masters. Our brew master "Toshio Terui" is one of that experienced and learnt brewing in this area.

COMMITMENT

We believe building the team with blazing passion against brewing is the most important thing. Sake market is drastically changing and spreading widely.

We brewers have to feel the shift of change and offer new value to the market with remaining our identity. That is why we are now trying to back to basic and produce rice nearby brewery and grow them with using same water source used for brewing sake too.

We will produce our signature sake which other brewery can't reproduce by making best use of local environment. Our specialty is glamorous aroma and mild taste mixed never bored of drinking sake.
