Commitment by Brewery
Their motto is “keeping cherishing old knowledge, so as continually to be acquiring new”
They value not only just preserving tradition, but also keep challenging themselves.
The ultimate Ideal sake for Koya Sake Brewery is that you can drink lightly and never feel bored of its taste.
Along with the change of food culture, their brewing is progressing day by day in order to bring out the food that has been transforming. As brewing sake consists of rice, water, Jiuqu, and yeast, they particularly value these 3 factors.
They use different types of rice from their local community that are exclusively selected according to each brand.
They use water from the thaw of spring that flows through the mountains with abundant trees and flows to the Mogami River in Okura Village, Yamagata.
Yamagata is known as Ginjo Kingdom and their outstanding technique had been inherited for generations for about 400 years.
