Kumamoto prefecture

Founded in 1867, Zuiyo is the first brewery in Kumamoto Prefecture to start making the clear sake (or what we know today as seishu), as akumochi-zake, a type of red sake, was the protected craft in this warmer climate region. In 1909 the original Kumamoto Prefectural Sake Research Center was built on their brewery grounds and together with the teachings of Kinichi Nojiro, the “God of Sake,” Zuiyo came to win first prize in the Annual Japan Sake Awards in 1918. Today they are makers of both seishu and akumochi-zake, providing the best regional sake for you to enjoy.
