Get tipsy organically

Marumoto Brewery is the first to have USDA certified organic rice. They use their home-grown, 100% organic Yamadanishiki rice to brew Chikurin “Organic Karoyaka”. This sake retains all stunning qualities of its cousin brew, Chikurin “Karoyaka”, and is USDA certified! Its classic ricey aroma is followed by a light, mochi sweetness that fades into cherry tones. You won’t find depth like this in almost any other light sake, so grab a bottle and drink organically.

Marumoto Brewing Company

Okayama prefecture

The Marumoto Brewing Company, founded in 1867, is often known as the “Farmer’s Brewery” because the people who brew the sake also grow the rice. Their care for their craft is so deep that they grow their own 100% Yamadanishiki rice for their sake. The brewery’s location at the foot of Chikurin-ji Mountains provides sparkling clear mountain water and luscious land prime for rice and sake. Always the fan of innovation, Marumoto-san likes to try new things, including sparkling sake, so the brewery is bound to have a sake to suit your tastes.
