Brewery: Tsukino-I Shuzo Ten
Founded: 1865

Profile: Tsukino-I (aka. “The Moon’s well”) Shuzo Ten was established in the Keio era and has been brewing Sake here at the Matsumaeya (aka. “In front of the pine tree”) for the past 150 years. The current Toji is Masayoshi Kikuchi: a descendant of Nanbu Toji Sake-school.  On the 140th anniversary of the brewery, Masayoshi-san began using Organic Miyama Nishiki rice to brew their sake. As a brewery they brew both day and night! And their motto is more or less that if they can even get one person to say that their sake is delicious, all of their hard work will have been worth it; to work with all of their heart and souls both day and night will have been a worthy investment.
