Harmonious with any dish

"Drunken Whale" is named after a warloard of this prefecture in Edo period who loved sake and drank a lot of it. Suigei Brewing Company aims to create sake that pairs perfectly with any dishes on the dinner table. They've achieved their goal with the versatility which brings milder umami with pleasant acidity when slightly chilled, and richer flavors with longer after taste when slightly warmed. A reserved ricey nose in this dry sake precedes an unexpectedly fine finish.

Suigei Brewing Company

Kochi Prefecture

The only sake brewery in Kochi City. Suigei is named after alias of Yamauchi Yodo, who was a Japanese Daimyo of the Shikoku region in the Edo period. 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.
