- Brewer's Tale I am Baba Shuzojo, the brewer of the sake "Nogomi". Our brewery is located in Kashima City in southwestern Saga Prefecture, facing the Ariake Sea, a sea of fertility. Our flagship brand "Nokomi" was created by the 8th generation of the current president and toji, Baba Daiichiro. This was due to the circumstances of the time when the 8th generation was young. At the time, sales were in steady decline and our company's survival was in jeopardy due to the lack of successors at the sake retailers we did business with. Furthermore, after the bursting of the bubble economy, liquor prices were liberalized, and major companies were selling regular sake at low prices. The 8th generation of the family decided to rethink the style of Baba Sake Brewery, and decided to "make sake that I want to make, sake that I have a passion for. After seven years of persuading the JA and local farmers, our brand was finally born. This is how the history of "Nogomi," which is derived from the former name of the place "Nogomi Village," began, filled with the thoughts and techniques of the local farmers and our brewers. In the near future, the baton will be passed on to the ninth generation, Baba Takeichiro. We hope to make "Nokomi" even more beloved by everyone, both father and son, and by all of our employees. The thoughts of Baba Sake Brewery ＜Sake rooted in the culture of Saga Saga Prefecture, a primary industrial area, is home to many delicious agricultural products, marine products, and livestock products. Our sake is basically a slightly sweet sake to match the ingredients and strong flavors of Saga. As we have a brewery in Saga, we will continue to pursue sake that is rooted in the culture, ingredients, and region of Saga. ＜Food and Sake Our sake "Nokomi" is made to be enjoyed with food. Our sake "Nokomi" is made to be enjoyed with meals. Our goal is to create a sake that is easy to drink two or three cups at a time. The company president's desire to make the meal the star of the show is expressed in the current "Nokomi. With so many different types of sake on the market, it would be ideal if people would return to our sake at the end of the day. <Human and Sake Sake is served at everyday tables, in pubs, and on festive occasions. We want people to drink "Nokomi" at such happy and joyful times. We want to preserve sake as a part of Japanese culture, a culture that brings people together. We want to be a brewery that is close to our customers in order to realize our company's vision.
