The Sohomare Brewery

Sohomare sake has been owned and operated by the Kono family since its founding in 1872 and is a prominent small sake brewery in the Tochigi region of Japan. For five generations, the Kono family has devoted itself to the art of creating a genuinely local sake that is made of the most excellent Yamada-Nishiki rice and hand-brewed the old Kimoto way. As Sohomare’s newest family-owner, Mr Jun Kono continues leading its tradition of hand-crafting each sake.
