Brewery: Akita Seishu (Founded: 1865)
In 1865, the company “Yamato-shuzouten” was founded in the area of Minaminaraoka（Currently Daisen-city) by Ito Juushiro who was the 12th head of the Ito Family. The brand name Yamatoshizuku originated from “Yamato Brewery” which was the first company name on the date of establishment in 1865. “Yamato is the trade name of the Ito family, and in the brewery, there are trade marks of “Yamato” everywhere even now. 150 years on, they still work with the same spirit as the brewery founders in the past. Their philosophy is to brew original and strictly local sake by only using particular local rice and water from within a 10km radius.
