Brewery: Hakkaisan Brewery Co., LTD (founded: 1922)
Founded in 1922, Hakkaisan Brewery is situated at the foot of Mount Hakkai in Niigata. The spring
water that flows from the mountain is used to produce its sake.
The guiding principles of the brewery are to produce the finest sake that people will never tire of, to apply the highest standards of production to all its sakes, and in order to achieve the smooth wonderfully pure and mellow flavors of Hakkaisan sake, the Brewery insists on producing in small batches, using hand-made koji and slow fermentation at low temperatures.
