Nagayamahonke Shuzojo Co.,Ltd.

In search of terroir (the climate of the ingredients) Sake is made from rice, koji (rice malt) made from rice by craftsmen, and water. Rice is the most important raw material for sake, but not many breweries are actually engaged in rice production. Nagayama Honke Sake Brewery Co., Ltd. established an agricultural production corporation, Domaine Ki, in 2019. Today, delicious sake has become more accessible, but Japanese agriculture is facing a serious lack of successors. At our brewery, we make sake in the winter and young sake brewers sweat in the rice paddies in the summer to cultivate sake rice. We do not believe that sake is only as good as its taste. We believe that the role of a sake brewery is to maintain the beauty of the rural landscape of the town and to make the local people shine. The source of water for the Atsuto River in the Futamatase district of Ube City, where our brewery is located, is Akiyoshidai. The calcium-rich water from the karst plateau brings the best minerals for sake. Our craftsmen and partner farmers who work together to grow rice in the northern area of Ube City use an abundance of Yamada-Nishiki, which they carefully nurture to produce sake. Sake with a soft but core rice flavor. This is what we aim for in our sake brewing, making the most of our "terroir. We are a sake brewery that loves its ingredients and is loved by its ingredients.
