Strikes a regal presence

Fudoh comes from a nickname of a god enshrined at Naritasan, a famous temple in Narita, Chiba prefecture. Like that god, this sake has a strong presence. With no charcoal fining done at all, this sake retains its most true flavor brimming with red apple and candy sweetness. It has a thick texture that finishes dry, a nice balance to the sweetness on the front of the palate. Fudoh “Junmai Daiginjo” is a proud gold winner of the 2015 and 2019 International Wine Challenge.

Chiba prefecture

Nabedana’s ancestors have started brewing sake in Narita by Naritasan temple for more than 320 years ago in the Edo period, the era of Tokugawa Shogunate. The brewing license, at first, was given by a local lord, and the Narita brewery was the only production facility site for the first 200 years of our history. As brewing business went on and well, they were able to expand the business by acquiring other production facilities. One of them was Kouzaki brewery, acquired in 1897. Later they maintained four production sites at one time including the one in Kobe, but unfortunately, in the beginning of World War II, due to the severe rice shortage, they were forced to choose one production site and close the others. Consequently, we chose Kouzaki. The reasons were that Kouzaki site was the biggest in terms of square, had a relatively better access to rice at the time, and had abundant water in good quality, all compared to others. Since then, they have been brewing their signature brand, Jinyu, for the last few decades at the Kouzaki brewery. They have made brewing the finest sake a family tradition for more than three centuries. Their brewing motto, “Never compromise” has been passed on to more than 19 generations.
