Brasserie de saké japonais de Miyoshino Jozo, Préfecture de Nara, Japon

The Shoryaku-ji temple in Yoshino is a place where during the Muromachi period (1336-1573) a group of monks produced their own sake using a special technique called "Bodaïmoto". To prevent the moromi (fermenting rice) from spoiling, the monks had found a trick to start the fermentation with spring water in which a certain amount of rice had been soaked. It was later shown that this soaking significantly increased the lactic acid concentration. This compound is essential to prevent bacterial growth at the start of fermentation. Thus, by this method, they ensured the good health of their production.
Ancient writings reporting the details of this method were discovered by chance and have been studied and put into practice. Miyoshino Jozo's brewery is one of the few breweries in Japan that uses this method for making sake. The result is a very typical sake with nice acidity. Exceptionally, all their sake is produced in barrels made of sugui wood, the Japanese cedar.
