What is “Kiyamasa Sake Brewery" that brews “Jikon"?

Kiyasho Sake Brewery is a long-established brewery founded in the first year of Bunsei (1818) in Nabari City, Mie Prefecture.
The store and main building, which retains the atmosphere of the time, is designated as a registered tangible cultural property.

We have manufactured "Takasago" and "Shikra Masamune" and sold them mainly in the Iga region. In 2005, we launched the "Shikra" brand and started wholesale to local sake specialty stores nationwide.
Quality-oriented sake is delivered with the idea of ​​"putting your thoughts in the bottle and making improvements without being satisfied with the current situation."

Each one is brewed in the blessed climate and climate peculiar to the Iga Basin, which can be said to be the best environment for sake brewing.
"Spring water of the Nabari River" is used as the water for preparation. "Yamada Nishiki from Iga" is used for rice. Especially for rice, it seems that they are particular about getting involved from rice planting with the cooperation of local farmers.
Yeast used is No. 9 type, which is suitable for low temperature fermentation. Carefully wash the rice little by little, make the jiuqu by hand, and slowly ferment it over time.
By doing this, the sweetness and acidity are in harmony, and a fresh and juicy liquor is born. In addition, Daiginjo is made using the traditional "bag hanging" method.

Retaining a 200-year-old brewery from the time of its founding, sake brewing is done using the old-fashioned manufacturing method. Kiyamasa Sake Brewery will continue to make genuine sake.
