Umegae Sake Brewery
The brewery was founded in the 7th year of Tenmei (1787), in the middle of the Edo period during the 11th Shogun Heisei era, and given the name “Umegae” by the lord of the Omura domain, Junjin Omura. Blessed with abundant nature and famous water from 300 meters underground, for more than 200 years since then, they have been making daily commitments from rice production to sake production. During this time, the brewery has won numerous awards, including the Gold Award at the National New Sake Appraisal, and the Honor Award at the Fukuoka National Taxation Bureau’s Appraisal for the sixth consecutive year.

Nagasaki Sake Breweries
Nagasaki Prefecture is located on the island of Kyushu. It borders Saga Prefecture to the northeast and surrounded by water, including Ariake Bay, the Tsushima Straits and the East China Sea. It also includes a large number of islands such as Tsushima, Iki and Goto. The arid, nutrient-poor soil made the prefecture difficult to grow rice. It was more suitable for sweet potato cultivation, so this plant was raised in earnest. Iki Island in Nagasaki Prefecture is said to be the birthplace of “Mugi-Shochu”, made from barley. During the shogunate of the 16th century, the rich and fertile soil of Iki caught the attention of the local domain. Rather than sweet potatoes or expensive rice, barley was promoted as a tribute. From this bounty of barley, Iki Shochu production began.
