Koshi no Kanchubai (Niigata Meijo)

Niigata Meijo is located in Ojiya in the central region of Niigata Prefecture 150 miles north of Tokyo. A fertile valley for rice farming surrounded by snow-covered mountains in winter, the environment is ideal for sake production. The company’s brewery has produced sake and distributed other wholesale beverages for 70 years.

Niigata Meijo sake products have received major awards including the best sake award at the Kanto Regional Sake Appraisal and 13 consecutive gold medal awards at the National New Sake Appraisal. Its sake has a characteristic gorgeous-smooth-clean flavor profile with clear finish, and one of the products in a small cup package (180ml) received the Grand Prix award of Japan’s Cup sake in 2008.
