What is “Morohashi Sake Brewery"?

Founded in 1847 (4th year of Koka). Morohashi Sake Brewery boasts a history of more than 170 years in Nagaoka City, Niigata Prefecture. Nagaoka City is the former Tochio City, and the Tochio area is blessed with historical assets.

The Tochio area is the place where the Sengoku warlord "Kenshin Uesugi", who you all know, spent his youth, and at that time he was calling himself "Kagetora Nagao".

As many of you may have noticed, the origin of the name Koshino Kagetora comes from the history and connection of this area.

The historic land of Nagaoka, which is located almost in the center of Niigata, is blessed with abundant nature, but is surrounded by mountains on all sides, making it one of the most heavy snowfall areas in Niigata.

This harsh and rich nature nurtures delicious sake and is loved not only in the prefecture but all over Japan.
The water used is the spring water from Todo no Mori, which was selected as one of the 100 Selected Waters in Japan, and the water that sleeps in the wells of the warehouse. All of them are soft water, and they are the secret of the refined taste of sake made by the same brewery, which is dry but does not make it feel spicy.

Morohashi Sake Brewery has been close to people along with history and nature for a long time. The strong brewers who support the brewery continue to produce famous sake.
