Fukumitsuya

Fukumitsuya was founded in 1625 near Mount Haku. The rainfall on these mountains soaks into the ground and flows into an underground spring that is used by Fukumitsuya in brewing. The brewers use this water in combination with just rice and microorganisms to produce only junmai sake, out of respect for the origins of sake brewing. Fukumitsuya’s “Kagatobi” brand is named for the local fire brigade from the Edo period (1603-1868), and represents the spirit and strength of Fukumitsuya’s sake. This spirit stands at the core of the brewery, and it’s present in all their sake.
