The Akita Seishu Brewery is located in Akita prefecture.

The Akita Seishu Brewery

In 1865, the company “Yamato-shuzouten” was founded in the area of Minaminaraoka(Currently Daisen-city) by Ito Jushiro, who was the 12th head of the Ito Family. The brand name Yamatoshizuku originated from “Yamato Brewery”, the original company name back in 1865. Over 150 years have passed, and they still work with the same spirit as the previous brewery founders. Today, Yamatoshizuku is part of Akita Seishu, along with the Dewatsuru, Kariho and Seiden sake brands. Akita Seishu came into being in 1913 and at one point was outputting high volumes of sake, but now they have refocused on brewing smaller batches of the finest quality. The brewers put their efforts into creating junmai sake using the kimoto and yamahai method, which enriches the flavour and aroma. The employees of Akita Seishu know that in order to make delicious sake, they must work together as one team. They put a lot of trust and companionship into each bottle, making them something special to cherish.
