About the brewery: Tanaka Shuzoten is located in the fertile plain of Kami-cho, Miyagi Prefecture. A plain supplied with water by the melting snow of nearby Mount Oou. The brewery was founded in 1789 by Rimbei Tanaka, then a first generation representative of the Date clan's leading kimono merchant. The choice of the region was not insignificant, as it is not only one of the most important rice producing areas in Japan, but also a historical and highly regarded place for sake production. Many breweries have won awards in the national new sake competition and Tanaka Shuzoten is of course one of them.
The rice produced in Miyagi Prefecture, the groundwater from the Oou Mountains and the brewers are all from the Tohoku region. They have a remarkable knowledge of the local resources and how to adapt each year's changing climate to sake production. Their toji has an unusual background to say the least. Morikawa Yasutaka was one of the youngest Toji in Japan. He worked in 14 different breweries before settling on the Tanaka Shuzoten brewery. He is responsible for the production of the entire Tanaka Shuzoten range, but has also created his own brand of sake, sold exclusively through a limited number of distributors, of which we are proud to be a part.
