They hope to make sake that is the best to pair with food - sake that is dry, yet with high acidity and umami - using the isolated Tosa mountain’s pure spring water. This water contains no iron or manganese, which are detrimental elements in sake. The brewery is also quite particular about their ingredients - the rice is polished very carefully, and they use true Kumamoto Yeast. Tosa's food culture has been nurtured by abundant seafood and fresh vegetables from the mountains. Many of them are dishes that make good use of the ingredients. Dining occasions in Tosa is to enjoy sake with dishes served in a large portion raging from sashimi to tempura and to enjoy conversations. With such food culture, the sake from Suigei is naturally designed to bring out the best flavors of the food that comes with it.
