A classic but fun

Before the time when sake grades were based on rice polishing ratio, Ichinokura created the “Mukansa” series as the epitome of quality sake for a great price. The Japanese writings on the label express their strong, unwavering commitment to this principle since 1977. Now with a friendly QR code and a pink label for their sweet “amakuchi” version, their signature clean finish and incredible versatility continues to shine through.

Thirty miles north of Sendai in Miyagi prefecture, Ichinokura started in 1973 by combining four local premium sake breweries. Their policy hasn’t changed since its inception that all brewing processes must be done by hand. Sake brewing requires all human senses and thephysical involvement of touching, tasting and smelling in the production; they believe this is the only way to brew high quality sake. Making the best sake with a new start was undoubtedly a challenge, but they’ve succeeded in creating multiple sensational products over the years and have become one of the best known breweries in Japan, maintaining a decades-long history of export as well.
