Sanyouhai Shuzo

Our company is located in Yamazaki-cho, Shiso City, Hyogo Prefecture, a former castle town on the banks of the Ibo River where Takaseboats are said to have once carried rice and lumber. The company was founded in 1837 (Tempo 8) during the Edo period, approximately 180 years ago. The brewery was founded in 1837 (Tempo 8) during the Edo period (1603-1868), and a reference in the Banshu historical book "Harima Fudoki" states that Iwa-no-okami (the Great God of Iwa) first brewed sake in this area. Currently, the 6th head of the brewery is trying to preserve the brewery's history and take on new challenges to pass it on to the next generation. The theme of Banshu Ikkyo is how to pursue the quality of sake that goes well with food. The sake itself should not be too assertive, but should be a perfect complement to the food. The Banshu area, where our company is located, is blessed with good quality rice and is one of the best sake rice-producing granaries in Japan, producing Yamada-Nishiki, the most representative sake rice in Japan. In addition, we use Hyonosen subsoil water (soft water), the highest mountain in Hyogo Prefecture, as our brewing water. The brewing water is soft water from Hyonosen, the highest mountain in Hyogo Prefecture. The soaking process is strictly calculated with limited water absorption, and the brewing tanks are small, allowing no compromise. Each bottle is then bottled, fire-quenched, and stored in a refrigerator at a temperature of approximately 0 degrees Celsius. We also use the former "Meinobu Mine" in the Tajima area to age our sake in the mine for a long period of time. Our goal is to create a sake that can take the next step forward while still preserving tradition. Shiso City, Hyogo Prefecture, where our company is located, is about 90% mountainous and forested, with more than half of the mountains in the prefecture over 1,000 meters high. The Ibo River and the Chikusa River are two of the clearest rivers in the prefecture. The headwaters of these rivers flow out of Shiso. Waterfalls of various sizes dot the mountain streams here and there, including the famous Hara Fudo Falls, which was selected as one of the 100 best waterfalls in Japan. In summer, ayu (sweetfish), which has won the grand prix at the National Ayu Auction, is served here, and in winter, peony hot pot using wild boar meat is available.
