Takazawa Sake Brewery

Founded in 1872 in Himi, Toyama, a town nationally famous for its fishers. With annual production of only about 35,000 liters of sake, Takazawa is a small brewery, working generation after generation in the pursuit of what it means to be a local brewer, producing sake that pairs well with local dishes and seafood. Takazawa's sake is not mass-produced, but rather lovingly crafted bottle by bottle, brewed with care, with respect for the traditional techniques used when the brewery was founded a century and a half ago, while taking advantage of the best of what modern technology has to offer toward making great sake.
