Akita Seishu

The Akita Seishu Kariho brewery was founded in 1913 in Akita Prefecture. This area is located at the extreme northwest of Honshu island, a mountainous area with very cold winters, and heavy snowfall. Many beautiful rices exist here, and very pure water; making it the ideal environment for quality sake production. The peculiarity of this brewery is that they use mineral rich water, while elsewhere in the region water is rather soft. This allows them to produce a dry sake with a lively and crisp character. The Akita Seishu Kariho brewery has maintained its traditional brewing methods, such as the use of horizontal presses, bypassing the mechanical press, and reccognized specialists of the old method of production called "Yamahai".
