The Akitabare Brewery
The Akitabare Brewery was founded in 1908 in Akita City, the capital city of Akita Prefecture, North West of Japan. While there have been numerous changes and technological progress in the sake world, Akitabare’s effort to protect and develop its traditional craftsmanship has led the team to brew some of the most iconic sakes available today. With a mild aroma, perfect balance and beautiful layers of subtleties, they are highly praised by connoisseurs who are looking for superior labels. Kazuo Kawaguchi, the brewery's president describes the vision of Akitabare brilliantly, ”If we had a motto, it would be 'fierce adherence to tradition, skilful adaptation to change.' If we were a flower, we would be a peony."
