This brewery has the longest history in Kanazawa (Ishikawa Prefecture). The fresh and clear water that takes 100 years to flow from the sacred mountain Hakusan and the distinct 4-seasons climate contribute to unique rice cultivation and sake making. Traditional techniques continue to evolve and the brewery has focused entirely on Junmai sake since 2001.
Fukumitsuya Junmai sake is pure koshu.
Our Iwanoi Junmai sake is made by the Iwase Shuzo house (Boso, Chiba Prefecture), a follower of traditional “Yamahai” production method (starter is made in a more laborious way, without adding lactic acid) . This longer fermentation method, now quite rare, gives the sake more pronounced, more complex aromatic notes.
Iwase has been producing this type of refined sake, known as “koshu”, since 1965.
