Utsumomiya SAKE Brewery
This brewery was chosen as the first class sake for JAL's international flights.
Shikizakura has been selected as the top 10 best local sake by Nikkei Business magazine, and it comes in first and second place!
In the three processes of koji (rice malt), moto (poisonfeed) and brewing, Shikizakura begins with the process of making rice.
Koji making is the work of pushing sensuality to the limit
Good koji is made by subtle manipulation of temperature and humidity, and the technique is known only to the senses.
