Rokka Sake Brewery
Rokka sake brewery is a company in which three prestigious breweries in Hirosaki, “Shirafuji,” “Shiraume,” and “Ichiyo,” merged in 1972. In Hirosaki at that time, the advancement of major sake brewers became fierce, and in order to counter this, three leading local companies gathered to protect Tsugaru’s local sake.
The five years leading up to the merger were controversial, but in order to preserve the tradition of Tsugaru sake, they finally united and Rokuhana Sake Brewery Co., Ltd. was established. For the sake brewing license, the qualification of Takashimaya of Shirafuji, who has a history of 253 years in his 8s, was prioritized.
The company name “Rokuhana Sake Brewery” was named by the mayor of Hirosaki at that time, meaning “snowflake” and symbolizing the climate of Tsugaru and sake brewing.

Aomori Sake Breweries
Aomori literally means blue forest, although it could possibly be translated as “green forest”. The name is generally considered to refer to a small forest on a hill which existed near the town. This forest was often used by fishermen as a landmark. The prefecture of Aomori is widely reputed for its local brews. The land of Aomori prefecture, blessed by the magnificent natural climate, enjoys pure natural water that flows from the nearby mountains, like the Shirakami Mountains World Natural Heritage. In addition, Aomori is a major producer of rice and local brewing products, such as sake made from sake-brewing rice and malted rice. The prefecture boasts top-quality brews cultivated in the fertile soils of Aomori that use local produce.
