Asahi Shuzo Co., Ltd.

Yamaguchi Prefecture

Asahi Shuzo Co., Ltd., the maker of Dassai and a 200-year history, is known for constantly reinventing themselves to adapt to modern challenges. From the turn of the century, they have committed themselves to the premium junmai daiginjo category, leading the sake industry to worldwide recognition. Using the “king of sake rice” Yamadanishiki, their sake exemplifies the modern delicate, floral brew to be enjoyed chilled in a wine glass. Their naming of Dassai “45,” “39” and “23” refers to the rice polishing ratio (the remaining percentage of rice after polishing) with Dassai “Beyond” being the ultimate expression of premium sake.
