Brewery: Yaoshin Shuzo
Founded: 1922

Profile: Yaoshin Brewery's brand name “Gangi” refers to the stepped piers that line the nearby river. They brew sake in an honest, straightforward manner, and try to perform as little post-processing as possible by forgoing widely practiced steps like roka (carbon filtration). All of their sake is Junmai as well - meaning that they do not fortify their sake with brewer's alcohol despite this being a traditional sake brewing technique. Just as an artist carves away layers of wood to reveal the beautiful wooden sculpture inside, so does Yaoshin wish to carve rice to reveal the delicious sake hidden inside.
