“Daishichi” & “Kariho” In-store tasting event @ Ikebukuro

You can taste Daishichi, DAISHICHI SAKE BREWERY CO., LTD. from Fukushima prefecture, and Kariho, AKITA SEISHU CO.,LTD. from Akita prefecture.

Daishichi (DAISHICHI SAKE BREWERY CO., LTD.)

Established in 1752, Daishichi is based in Tohoku, northeast Japan. Daishichi makes rich, mellow sakes whose outstanding reputation comes from an insistence on a strictly orthodox brewing tradition: the kimoto method. All Daishichi products are superb examples of kimoto sake.

Above all else, they seek depth of flavour: sake that grows and matures over time, flowering into exceptional quality. They continue to cherish hand-crafted brewing techniques that combine the best of nature’s bounty with their own expertise and experience.

Kariho (AKITA SEISHU CO.,LTD.)

Akita Seishu Co. Ltd. makes and bottles nihonshu using Akita rice under the Dewatsuru, Kariho and Yamato Shizuku brands. The Akita Seishu Kariho brewery was founded in 1913 in Akita Prefecture. This area is located at the extreme northwest of Honshu island, a mountainous area with very cold winters, and heavy snowfall. Many beautiful rices exist here, and very pure water; making it the ideal environment for quality sake production.

The Kariho brand has a more mineral-heavy water source, creating a drink characterized by a drier, sharper taste, while elsewhere in the region water is rather soft. The top seller, the Kariho Daiginjo, has a lighter, clearer taste that’s reminiscent of the cold snap of Akita’s winter air.
