Akita Seishu

Akita prefecture

Dewatsuru, Yamatoshizuku, Kariho and Seiden are all different brands of Akita Seishu. Akita Seishu came into being in 1913, and at one point was outputting high volumes of sake, but now they have refocused on brewing smaller batches of high-quality sake. The brewers put their efforts into creating junmai sake using the kimoto and yamahai method which enriches the flavor and aroma. At Akita Seishu, they know that in order to make delicious sake there must be unity between all the brewery workers. Every bottle they put out is the product of great trust and companionship, something worth investing in.
