Brewery: Asahishuzo Co., LTD (founded: 1948)Rather than sake that will get someone drunk, or sake that will sell the most, Asahishuzo's aim is to create sake for tasting - to brew sake that is truly delicious and enjoyable for all. Their brand Dassai is the personification of this philosophy.
We must note, however, that they have no intention of brewing elusive phantom sake that doesn't sell. This brewery makes some of the most popular and universally relatable sake in the world today.
