About This Item
Located in Akita, Japan, Takashimizu Brewery prides itself on its long history of traditional sake making. The premier method of sake brewing that is used today was invented in Akita. However, as important as technique is the brewery’s location. Cold winters and mountainous terrain produce high quality, soft riverbed water at its purest state. It is here that technique and Mother Nature share a deep connection, allowing Akita to be one of the top sake-producing regions in Japan.
