Business: Sake production and sales
Myokoshuzo has been making and selling sake ever since our foundation in 1815 in Niigata. For about 200 years, we have refined our sake brewing techniques to produce sake that is now not only sold in Japan, but is also exported to foreign countries. High-quality soft water from Mount Myokosan, mainly Niigata rice and yeast cultured by ourselves are used to brew sake. We at Myokoshuzo are committed to the continued creation and supply of products that match the lifestyles of our customers.

Its taste is dry but rich taste from Niigata rice, so it matches many kinds of dish.
The last note is sharp and quickly vanishing, so you can enjoy the next dish with your fresh mouth and throat.
Soft and delicate fragrance
Especially, Ginjo type maintain originally bouquet and fragrance by pasteurizing manually after unpasteurized sake is bottled like that for important Sake Contests.
They are much less oxidized than that saved in sake tank.
