Brewery: Taruhei Brewery
Founded: Around 1965

Profile: Visiting Taruhei brewery is like stepping into a different era. They preserve the traditional sake making processes and use exclusively wooden tools whilst brewing. They strongly believe sake should be only made with rice, and therefore only produce Junmai Sake.
The ultimate aim is to produce sake you will not get tired of, but which also has originality and personality.
