Taiheizan (KODAMA BREWING Co.,Ltd)

Founded in 1879 in Japan’s northern Akita prefecture, the family owned Kodama Brewing Company first produced soy sauce and miso soy bean paste, basic condiments in Japanese cooking, before it began brewing sake in 1913. The centuries old, labor intensive Kimoto method is still used to brew Taiheizan’s pure rice super premium and premium sake. Our sake is being distributed to an increasingly wide international market that includes the USA, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore as well as Japan.

Taiheizan Chogetsu is awarded Platinum Medal in Junmai Daiginjo & Junmai Ginjo category in Kura Master 2018.
Taiheizan Junmai Daiginjo Tenko 20 is awarded Super Premium GOLD in SAKE COMPETITION 2018. This is Seimaibuai 20%. (80% of the sake rice has been polished or milled  away.) The lower the number, the more the rice has been polished, the cleaner and more elegant the flavor. High polishing is difficult to achieve, and it is time consuming, because of that more expensive.

You can buy in amazon Seimaibuai 40% Taiheizan Junmai Daiginjo Tenko.

Wakatsuru (Wakatsuru Shuzo)

Toyama Prefecture is known for the delicious kan-buri amberjack and firefly squid of Toyama Bay, as well as for the Northern Alps, towering some 3,000 meters high. Located to the west, one finds the Tonami Plains and Sankyo-no-Sato village, naturally beautiful and the source of top-quality rice and the pure, clean water of the Shogawa River’s underground streams. It is here that you’ll find the Wakatsuru Sake Brewery, where the perfect ingredients for excellent sake are all to be found.

Since its founding in 1862, Wakatsuru Sake Brewery has been focused on simply making better sake, and continues to do so.
