Azumamine Sake Brewery

Azumamine Sake Brewery was founded as “Shiwa Sake Brewery” in the first year of Tenmei (1781) in the middle of the Edo period. Its predecessor was “Gonbei Sake Shop,” which was the first in Iwate to produce “clear sake” in the upper stream during the Enpo era (the 1670s), and the existence of this brewery later led to the birth of Mr. Minamimori. At our brewery, we inherit the mainstream of southern style sake brewing, aiming for “Iwate-like sake”, and we are making sake with all our heart by producing a small amount of about 500 stones a year, which makes all the preparations noticeable.
