Brewery: Okuda Shuzoten
Founded: 1675

Profile: Okuda Shuzo is the third oldest brewery established in Akita prefecture and exports the smallest amount of sake leaving Akita prefecture (based on 2015 shipment data); this allows them the flexibility and time to develop their skills and painstaking attention to detail which maintain the highest standards of Sake-brewing. Particularly popular are their Junmai Ginjo Genshu and Sake that made with modern, proprietary yeasts.
