Fukumitsuya brewery believes in minimal intervention sake making and uses the simplest ingredients to create sake like this artisan Ginjo. Special attention results in bold and clean flavor with crisp, bright finish. The highest quality Yamada-Nishiki rice and spring water from Mt. Hakusan come together to create a piece of art by the mother nature.
Kagatobi is brewed in Ishikawa Prefecture in the Hokuriku region.
Kagatobi is named after the in-house firefighters who were tough and powerful, highly skilled but short-tempered. They were known as “Cool” firefighters, and always popular among people in Edo. This traditional brewery was founded in 1625 in Kanazawa City, a place that has come to be known as “Little Kyoto”—but that’s also grown to be an important city in its own right as a place that has seamlessly bridged the new and the old. Kanazawa is a castle town that was ruled by the Maeda family for three centuries, and it has preserved many of the traditions and artisanal crafts of the past—while also embracing contemporary tastes. And the same can be said for Fukumitsuya.
