Call forth the power of the Earth

When people become disconnected from nature they forget the true power of the Earth. Ura-Gasanryu Syoka is brewed using natures’s best, and embodies the ever flowing power of the world.

Shindo Brewing Company

Shindo has been brewing a local but famous brand “Fukutsuru” for the last 10 generations. This new brand “Gasanryu” was invented from an idea of going back to the original. They rebuilt the entire process to make truly authentic sake for sake lovers by taking harvest of rice to brewing all in-house. “Gasanryu” is limited in availability, most of them are only consumed locally.
