Industrial Tourism in Japan
Our brewery was founded in 1918. We create sake prepared with underground water from Iidesan (Mt. Iide), within what is referred to as the Tohoku Alps, by including revolutionary technology while protecting traditional manufacturing methods. In addition to sake, we also produce liqueur and shochu, and at Unreian, a facility abutting a large Japanese garden located on our grounds, visitors are able to taste test sake and learn about the sake brewing process. We have received gold medals two years running from the International Wine Challenge in 2013 and 2014.
