Commitment of Fukui Brewery

  1. vaunted water
    We use water from our well for sake making. Water from Tenryu-river, which is famous for wild water, contains high proportion of mineral and is soft water. The taste is deep but easy to drink, which is completely different from commercially supplied soft mineral water. The water is indispensable for our sake making.

  2. century-long traditional technique
    Small kilns we are using is not so productive but can enhance the quality of taste. We have faced delicate sake for a century and acquired lots of knowledge and technique for making sake. Now, we have 12 licenses for making sake. Responding to customers’ requests has contributed to our technique.

  3. human
    To make a good sake, and for drink a good sake, The “human” element is particularly important. Appreciate to human, and harmony makes a good sake.
