Brewery: Miyao Shuzo
Founded: 1819

Profile: Miyao has been brewing high-quality sake since 1819. In 1965, this brewery was one of the first to start making Junmai sake.  The secret to their success lies in their soft, well water which comes from the Asahi mountain range of Niigata and Yamagata via the Miomote River which is famous for its salmon run.  Niigata is notorious for excess snowfall and largely fluctuating temperatures, the air and water of which is filtered by dense forests.  Miyao is situated in Murakami, one of the finest rice producing areas of Niigata that cultivates rice such as Gohyakumangoku and the recently developed Koshi Tanrei. For their Daiginjo sake, they use Yamada Nishiki grown in Hyogo.
