COMMITMENT TO QUALITY
Through the long term, which they have nearly 300 years' history, relationship with the local farmers, selected high-grade brewery rice is offered by them. Besides, they don't hesitate to use the rice produced in other prefectures to explore their ideal taste.
Their water is relatively little hard, so that fermentation turns to be more active than soft water and maturing gives better effects to the quality of sake. Their brewing theory is all set up from this feature of water.
"We don't have any special skills or technics". That is what the owner Mr. Takai talked to us about their brewing skill. "What we have to commit is pleasing our customers every year. It is important to keep offering high-quality sake, so that sticking to the basics is the most important skill." Based on inherited traditional skill, Mr. Takai is injecting his young sense to produce the sake loved by this age.
Especially he has his own theory as for the combination of brewery rice and yeast. He proactively takes yeast not common in this area.
It is very simple. They don't have lots of difficult words to describe their mind. Sticking with the basics is only important thing for them. They are trying to improve the quality by doing what's expected as expected, which looks very easy but most difficult way.
