Ultimate expression of classic “kimoto”

As new sake styles developed in the 20th century, Daishichi Brewing Company wanted to create a classic and noble sake with rich and deep flavors to represent the good old values. The layers of umami from the rice and expansive expressions it reveals once warmed, they believe, is only achieved by the long, robust fermentation of their kimoto process and the precise and careful carving of each grain of rice.

Daishichi Brewing Company

Daishichi Brewing Company is located in the castle town of Nihonmatsu, and was founded in 1752 by Saburoemon Ohta, originally from a samurai family. Daishichi means big seven, and comes from the hereditary name of consecutive family heads Shichiemon. Daishichi makes rich, mellow sake with an outstanding reputation in the orthodox kimoto brewing method, in which they specialize. The numerous accolades, won both nationally and internationally, can perhaps be attested to master brewer Takanobu Sato’s perfectionist ways. Their sake is exceptionally balanced and is food friendly to any portion of a meal, from any part of the world.
