Osaka Sake Breweries
Osaka Prefecture is located in the Kansai region of Honshu. It borders Hyogo Prefecture to the northwest, Kyoto Prefecture to the north, Nara Prefecture to the southeast and Wakayama Prefecture to the south. During the Edo period, Osaka was the best sake in the world. A large amount of sake was brought from the three provinces of Settsu, Kawachi, and Izumi to Edo and was touted as “downhill sake”. Osaka’s sake brewed with high-quality rice from the local area and the pure water brought from the surrounding mountains is cultivated by the lifestyle and richness of food in Osaka and it has a solid claim to its refreshing taste. The search for depth is a characteristic. It is a sake that makes the food even more delicious, and the taste is even more pronounced depending on the food.
Daimon Brewery was founded in 1826 at the base of the Ikoma Mountain range. It hails from a beautiful area in Osaka Prefecture called Kita-Kawachi. This area is famous for its many caves and archeological sites that date back from the Jomon Era (before 300 BC) and Yayoi Era (between 300 BC and 300 AD). The brewery used high-quality rice from nearby areas, and the clear water brought from the mountains of Settsu and Ikoma to produce high sake, with the excellent techniques that have been inherited and developed from the Middle Ages. The “Kikuyoro” brand has been patronized by locals who have always wanted to drink the delicious sake of the region, as well as “Rikyu Ume” brand that was newly launched in the era of Ginjo sake.
