Sakurauzumaki Sake Brewery
The Shinohara family, whose origin is the priest of Kunitsuhikoinochi Shrine, started the brewing business in 1871, shortly after the Meiji Restoration. In 1951, the current company name was changed to “Sakura Uzumaki Sake Brewery Co., Ltd.” The sake name “Sakura Uzumaki” means that the forest “Yatakeyama” that I owned was a famous place for cherry blossoms. Also, the newspaper novel that the 3rd generation loved to read was “Uzumaki”, so I started using it. In 1959, he also obtained a shochu manufacturing license. The production of shochu also boasts a history of more than 50 years. At Sakura Uzumaki Sake Brewery, we value the belief that sake is made by the blessings of heaven, earth and people. Heaven is water, earth is rice, and people are brewers. As the word suggests, the water used is groundwater, which is underground water from Mt. Takanawa, and most of the raw rice is from Ehime prefecture, especially from the local Hojo prefecture.
