The Ultimate Food Sake
Founded in 1873, with the professed aim of delivering “the ultimate meal-time sake”, the brewery continues to hold itself to a support role, in deference to cuisine. The brewery’s head office is located in the south of the Osaki Plain in Miyagi Prefecture, where the Sasanishiki and Hitomebore rice variants originated from. However, the brewery struggled to make a profit, when 90% of all sake produced was basic sake (“Futsushu”) around the year 2000. It was when the 5th generation owner Niizawa returned to the brewery the predecessor was thinking about closing the brewery but Mr. Niizawa persuaded him to keep the brewery running and started a great turnaround.
