Promise for good quality junmai

“Shuhai” is a red, flat and lacquered sake vessel used for celebrations. Former president of Chiyonosono always longed to revive the quality junmai they made before the war. Finally in 1967 when they were able to make junmai sake once again, they shared the first fresh press with a gigantic shuhai. Ever since then, they’ve named all their junmai sake Shuhai. It’s a shared promise for continued dedication and happiness.

Chiyonosono Brewing Company

In 1896, Chiyonosono Brewing Company was founded by a prominent rice merchant in Yamaga City which prospered during the Edo period, next to a trade highway. The name Chiyonosono is a reference to the Imperial Court and the garden of eternity, and instills the wish for eternal prosperity for the people. Today, they are particular about using Kumamoto yeast developed within the prefecture which isn’t overly expressive but has a nice balance of aroma and flavor. They aim for simple sake made from rice, with the right balance of brightness, depth and ease of drinking to be the perfect accompaniment to your meal.
