About the Shirataki Sake Brewery
The Shirataki Sake Brewery was founded in 1855 and is located in Echigo Yuzawa in Niigata Prefecture, also known as "Snowland". It takes 40 to 50 years for the melt water of the snow to be absorbed by the ground water. On this long journey, the water is cleaned of impurities and enriched with many valuable minerals. The soft water that flows back to the surface is absolutely pure and fantastic. It tastes subtly sweet and is a blessing for sake and shochu production. The Shirataki Brewery is certain: quality sake is born from quality water. A total of 10% of the almost 1,000 sake breweries in Japan are located in Niigata Prefecture. The prefecture is the largest sake producer in the country and is celebrated worldwide for the quality of its products. The cool climate additionally favours sake production by ensuring slow fermentation.
