Description

Founded in 1893, it became independent from the head family Chouemon Kumagai.
In 1955, it renamed itself as “Misuzu”. The sake name “Misuzu” was named after the Shinano makurakotoba “Misuzukaru” which means pillow shaped!

This small brewery has such a strong determination to bring its Sake to the world, we couldn’t resist its super high quality and neither will you!

The area is in a semi-highland area at an altitude of 750m, and the water and air are both clean, making it an ideal environment for sake brewing. The brewing water uses fine-textured soft water from the Narai River system to brew smooth and soft sake.

TYPE:  Pure Rice Sake (no added Sake, or alcohol)

OUR TASTING NOTES:
