Kikunotsukasa Shuzo Brewery

Our brewery was founded in 1772, the brewery is located in Morioka City, Iwate Prefecture. The water used for our sake “Kiku no Tsukasa” and “Seven Lucky Gods” is underground water from the Nakatsugawa River, which flows directly behind the brewery. The Nakatsu River is a clear stream that flows through Morioka City and is a healing river full of nature where sweetfish fishing in the summer, salmon run up for spawning in the fall, and swans fly in the winter. The water quality is very clear because it contains a moderate amount of minerals that have exuded from the bedrock of the Iwate Mountains, and it is used for all work with only the minimum amount of dust removal filtration. This water is the life of our sake. We will continue to refine the sake brewing that is popular locally, but we are mainly focusing on new development in the metropolitan area and export to overseas.
