Brewery: Miyao Shuzo
Founded: 1819

Profile: Miyao has been making industry leading top quality sake since 1819, according to primary sources from the time. In 1965, they were one of the first to start making Junmai-sake.The secret to their success are as follows; their well water comes from the Asahi mountain range of Niigata and Yamagata, areas famous for snowfall and largely fluctuating temperatures. The air and water are also filtered by the volumnous forests of the area. Additionally their rice is known as the top quality in the region - mostly they use Gohyakumangoku, and sometimes the recently developed Koshi Tanrei Rice. For their Daiginjo sake, they use Yamada Nishiki from Hyogo.
