Zaku “Ho no Tomo”
True craft always shines
“Zaku” translates to “craft,” and expresses their value of continuing to craft honest, true sake together with customers in this ever-changing world. Brewed using a combination of locally grown Yamadanishiki and Ukonnishiki rice milled to 60%, the brewers ferment this brew in small batches for careful control. Bright lychee acidity on the nose and so fresh and clean in texture, it’s a food-friendly, simply divine sake.

Shimizu Seizaburo Shoten
Shimizu Seizaburo Shoten was founded in 1869 near the Suzuka Mountains. The area was thriving with breweries but this is the last one left. Led by a toji who was born and raised in the area, the brewers choose to create their sake in a more natural way. They focus on small batch starters with all koji made by hand. They also put their sake through a much longer fermentation period than normal in order to achieve a more delicate and fragrant aroma. With 100% effort put into every batch, the brewers create wonderful sake with no regrets.Learn more
