COMMITMENT TO QUALITY
The story of SAKAEMASU had started from Niigata prefecture. When our founder birth in Niigata firstly started this brewery, what he had done first was to look for the high-quality water source. and then the place they found was Tatebayashi-shi, Gunma Prefecture. We respect the spirit of founder and use Gohyakumangoku, which is Niigata's most famous brewery rice for brewing.
It is said that the underground water from High Plateau Oze which crosses Niigata and Gunma flows into Tatebayashi-shi, Gunma prefecture. This underground water flows underground for a long time, so containing full of mineral and it's quite an important nutrient for yeasts to ferment. Because of the high-quality water in Tatebayashi, lots of famous food factories of Japan such as Shoda Soy Sauce, Nisshin Flour Milling, Calpis, and Bulldog Sauce are located in this place. We use the excellent water for brewing.
Our sake brewing is always with a prayer "discover the real joy of sake" for all the people taste SAKAEMASU. To make this happen, we make a complete use of the methods of water absorbing, box koji, long-term moromi fermentation, and funeshibori which normally used only for the highest quality for our brand "SAKAEMASU".
Our ideal brewing is to bring the power of rice out. The attractiveness of sake is sweetness and umami influenced by rice and koji. We are trying to make real rice wine without the power of yeast.
