Rise and shine

A brew that brightens like the sweet dappling of morning’s first light. The livening aroma of cucumber and Asian pear are sure to pique your interest, and the dash of spiciness that follows will put a pep in your step from the first taste. If there was ever a sake to pair with Mexican food, this is the one. Staying true to the heart of sake, this brew knows no bounds.

Kojima Sohonten

Kojima Sohonten

Yamagata Prefecture

Kojima Sohonten was established in 1597 and became the exclusive sake provider to the famed Uesugi samurai clan. They’ve been proudly brewing sake of the rising sun ever since. Using the crystal clear water of the Mogami River, Kojima Sohonten crafts one of a kind sake for the world to enjoy. The brewery’s coveted spot rests extremely close to the source of Mogami River, the picturesque Mount Azuma. The heavy snowfall melts, then flows down from the mountaintop, filtering until it spills out forming the Mogami River, fresh, clean and soft. Despite being one of the oldest active breweries in Japan, Kojima Sohonten continues innovating to bring you top-tier sake.
