Brewery: Izumibashi (founded: 1857)
Believing that good sake is made with good rice, Izumibashi is one of the few breweries in Japan that polish AND grow their own sake-rice with their own hands. The name Izumibashi comes from the Izumi river which used to irrigate their fields, and Hashi their family name - together Izumibashi means Izumi Bridge.
