Kamezumi Sake Brewery is a brewery located in Tosa City, Kochi Prefecture, where the nature is abundant.

Tosa City has a beautiful Hasuke River and Mt. Hasuke, which is rich in nature, making it a perfect place for sake brewing.

About Kamezumi

Underground water that does not wither even in drought

The water prepared for the Kamesen is the water from the spring that has been springing up without drying out from the time of the change of attendance in the Edo period to the present. This fountain never dried even in the Edo period, so it was also called the “Mannen no Izumi" (Spring of All Years)  at that time. The spring is still in the storehouse and is being used with great care.

The water itself is slightly sweet and has a gentle throat. Because such water continues to spring, Kamezumi can continue to brew sake.

Prefecture’s own rice suitable for sake brewing

Against the backdrop of the recent boom in local sake, we are in an era where “the uniqueness of the prefecture’s sake" is being questioned.

Therefore, there was a growing demand for rice suitable for sake brewing, which is unique to the prefecture, and the trend was to use delicious Tosa rice for sake brewing. Kamezumi Sake Brewery is one of the sake breweries that started making this trend in Kochi Prefecture.

The Kochi Prefecture Sake Rice Study Group was established in 1988, and as a result of research up to the present, various rice suitable for sake brewing from Kochi Prefecture has been born.

“Tosa Nishiki," “Gin no Yume," and “Kaze Naruko" were born as the rice used by Kamezumi.
We aim to make delicious sake with rice while using “Yamada Nishiki, Hyogo Prefecture", which is the best rice for sake brewing in Japan.

The taste of Kamezumi

The biggest feature of Kamezumi is its refreshing aftertaste.
The sake has a good balance of aroma and taste and sharpness, so it does not persist in the mouth and you can drink it more and more.

It combines sourness, sweetness, bitterness, and umami, so you can drink slowly and enjoy the harmony! It’s also good to drink seafood and squid that goes well with Kamezumi! It is a sake that can be enjoyed in various ways.
