Brew for Future.

Brewing a future in harmony with nature. Japanese serows still visit the brewery. The town of Tsunan in Niigata Prefecture, Japan, has one of the world's largest snowfalls as an inhabited area. Traces of many creatures have been found here since the Jomon period, thousands of years ago, and snow and the blessings of human life have coexisted in this unexplored region since ancient times. We live and brew sake in this unexplored area. The raw materials - rice, water and people - are all made from only what is born in the region: terroir sake from the snow country. We want you to taste what kind of sake is brewed.

Warehouse in the snow

Tsunan Brewery brews only during the snowy season. The sake brewery built in the beech and cedar forests of the mountains is like a forest house standing in the snow. Snow is entangled with dust in the air, kept low temperature and humidity constant, and easy to control microorganisms, so good sake can be made.

Sake rice.

Tsunan Brewery is rare in Japan, and it is a brewery where sake rice farmers started brewing to protect sake rice. The sake rice that should be protected is Niigata's representative sake brewing suitable rice "Gohyakumangoku". Most of the rice fields in Tsunan are around 300 meters above sea level, and the temperature difference between day and night is large, so the whiteness is large and the grains are large, making it suitable for sake brewing.


Tsunan Brewery's sake brewing is slowly brewed using a three-stage brewing method. The taste is light and swelling, and the aftertaste is smooth and refreshing, and it is highly regarded as a sake that goes well with cooking.

One of the mxost heavy snowfall areas in Japan-Tsunan-

Tsunan Town, Niigata Prefecture, is known for its heavy snowfall. When there is a lot of snow, it is covered with 4-5m of snow, and the clear air and clean thaw water on the river terrace, which is one of the largest in Japan, make a living.

Water preparation

The water source is the snow that has fallen on the mountains at an altitude of 2000 meters, and it is blessed with abundant and clean water that has been selected as one of the 100 Selected Water. This water is "ultra-soft water" with fine particles and mellow water, making it an excellent water for storing the nutrients of the earth.
