Inaba Shuzo

Ibaraki Prefecture

Established at the foot of Tsukuba Moutain for 13 generations, Inaba Shuzo is a micobrewery that uses its own spring water and rice produced in the surroundings for the preparation of sake. Since 2000, a woman named Nobuko Inaba is in charge of production. She is one of the few Toji women in this still very masculine world. 

Brasserie de saké japonais de Inaba Shuzo, Préfecture de Ibaraki, Japon

At Inaba Shuzo, all stages of production are carried out by hand, including those conventionally mechanized such as washing rice or filtering and pressing. This goes all the way to Koji and Moromi where temperatures are not measured, but simply felt by the brewer. An ancestral working method illustrated here by the “Stella” cuvées, a series exclusively composed of Daïginjos produced in only seven barrels per year.
