Marumoto Sake Brewery
Although it is common practice for wine producers to grow their own grapes, it is not so common for sake brewers to grow their own rice -- sake's main ingredient.
At our brewery, we grow organic rice with an aim to produce "safe and secure Japanese sake".
Organic farming is a method that brings out the original cultivation power of the rice field, without using pesticides and chemical fertilizers. Our product "ORGANIC CHIKURIN " is made from this organic rice.
In 2009, we have received organic certification from the National Organic Program (NOP) in North America, and in 2010, we became the first Japanese sake brewer to be certified by organic standard in Europe (EC Regulation).
