Why is

sake good?

the marriage of modern and traditional techniques combines with natural ingredients to produce the very finest flavours in Japan. And it is with the utmost confidence that Fukushima’s breweries deliver sake with a wide variety of unique flavours and aromas. You will never grow tired of Fukushima sake.
The passion of Fukushima Prefecture and the devotion of its sake brewers combine to create a “Fukushima pride” which constantly strives for excellence.

Rice Rice

Rice

Fukushima Prefecture is renowned as one of Japan’s top ricegrowing regions, and several varieties of sake rice are grown specifically for use in sake brewing. Soil preparation using digital soil map data and thorough quality control processes allow for the very best use of Fukushima’s natural topography and ensures that its sake rice is of the highest quality. Since sake rice is such an essential ingredient in the brewing process it is grown with the utmost care and attention.

Water Water

Water

Water is an essential ingredient in sake brewing, and throughout the prefecture Fukushima can rely on an abundance of delicious sources such as the moderately hard water from the Abukuma-do limestone cave, and the subterranean rivers which flow from Mount Bandai. Water can also have an influence on the taste and texture of sake so, year after year, breweries are scrupulous in using their own water sources when producing their sake.

Brewers Brewers

Brewers

Fukushima Prefecture has its very own Sake Academy, where budding young prefectural brewers, outside of the framework of their companies and over a period of three years, acquire the knowledge and techniques of sake brewing. Lecturers, who are drawn from the likes of the prefecture’s traditional breweries, nurture the feledgling master brewers, teaching them the fundamental knowledge and techniques which are essential to the brewing of fine sake. the prefecture’s research institutes have also compiled a manual on how to produce high quality Ginjo sake as part of the ongoing “Fully Fukushima” quality improvement efforts.
