Did you know that sake is older than the written Japanese language?!
This sake video from Akita Shurui Seizoh showcases the sake brewing and tradition that is behind the “Drink of the Gods”. Sake is brewed somewhat like beer, but drinks elegantly like wine – it is truly a unique beverage!
Dating back to 1656, Akita Shurui Seizoh were some small family sake breweries, came together as one to establish Akita Shurui Seizoh (formerly known as Takashimizu). This boutique sake house is located in Akita, Japan — a region renowned for its artisan sakes.
Akita Shurui Seizoh handcrafts the Shimizu-No-Mai line of luxury sakes from highly-polished local rice and soft, riverbed water. The sake brewery’s dedication to purity and quality has awarded the brewery twelve consecutive gold medals at Japan’s only national sake competition.
