Brewery: Totsuka Shuzoten (founded: 1653)
A product of nature all harvested locally, Kanchiku uses Nagano grown Miyamanishiki rice and Yatsugatake underground spring waters. It is intentionally brewed during the sub-freezing months around minus 15 degrees Celsius, to arrive at the Toji's ideal brew. The name depicts a rare species of bamboo which sprout in winter.
