Kondo Brewing Company

Founded in 1875 by Kondo Kamekichi using water from the great Mt. Akagi, Akagisan has been brewing dry sake since the beginning. Their name was inspired by the mountain and by a song from a play about “Japan’s Robin Hood”, named Chujiro Kunisada. The water used is pure and perfect for brewing the dry sake that the region has become known for. Akagisan won the “Best Prize” at the 2006 Kanto Koshinetsu National Tax Service Sake Storage Conference. Despite a long time in the business, they manage to continue producing new and exciting sake.
