Uchigasaki Brewing Company
In 1620, Date Masamune—a daimyo in Miyagi Prefecture—ordered Oribe Uchigasaki to build a town on the road to the northernmost prefecture on Honshu Island, Aomori. In 1661, Oribe’s son, Sakuemon, founded the Uchigasaki Brewing Company. They never stopped brewing sake for over 300 years since then. To this day, they continue to keep the tradition of making sake in small batches, keeping the craftsmanship of sake making used by the Nanbu Toji Guild. Loved by locals for generations, they are in the snowy and cold part of Japan, waking up every morning to bring you solid quality sake.
