Brewery: Takasago Brewery (founded: 1980s)
In Takasago's quest for recognition as Hokkaido's most beloved sake brewery, they carve these words into each drop of precious sake - "Anzen (Safe), Anshin (Peace of Mind), Oishii (Delicious)". In 1990, they began utilizing their unique Ice Dome/Igloo Room brewing method - at night, temperatures reach -15ºC! Despite the extreme conditions, the brewery strives to create a kind of sake that can truly only be produced in Ashikawa, Hokkaido Prefecture.
