Tastes like good fortune

A sake brewed near Rokko mountain. As fortune would have it, the mountain creates ideal conditions for sake brewing. The cold winds coming down the South side slow fermentation allowing for more controlled brewing, which helped craft the luxurious sweetness of Fujuku Black. A nose of white peach and thick flavor won this sake two gold medals in 2017: the Kura Master Daiginjo gold and the US Sake Appraisal gold. Enjoy in a large wine glass.

Kobe Shushinkan

Hiroshima Prefecture

The Fukuju brewery is situated in the Nada region of Kobe, Japan, near Rokko Mountain, which brings good fortune to their craft of making sake. Extreme temperature swings on the north side of the mountain are ideal for growing sake rice. Cold winds blowing down the south side are perfect to slow the fermentation process, which means better-controlled brewing for richer and smoother taste. Local mountain streams supply naturally pure water “Miyamizu” with just the right mineral content. It is with these basic ingredients that they have been making signature sake for over 200 years. The brewery property includes a courtyard surrounded by the main plant that houses a brewing facility, a Japanese restaurant focusing on fine cuisine complemented by their own fine sake, a shop offering sake and tableware as well as a wooden brewery hall which presents a wide range of entertainment.
