Masuda Tokubee Shoten
Founded in 1675, Masuda Tokubee Shoten is one of the oldest breweries in the Fushimi region of Kyoto Prefecture.

Masuda Tokubee Shoten is known for creating the first nigori sake in 1964—a version that is cloudy and sparkling, and for having one of the oldest aged sake. The current,14th generation owner is an international leader in representing what is inherently and historically Japanese while making sure it is in harmony with the rest of the world.
