Brewery: Kokonoe Saika
Founded: 1908

Profile: Kokonoe Saika is a rare brewery in that they not only brew sake but they also make vinegar as well. Situated in N. Wakayama prefecture in the city of Kinokawa, Saika was founded by Toyokichi Saika on the principles that "In order to make better vinegar we should consistently be using sake lees (aka. kasu) as the main raw material.” Furthermore, he also hoped to produce sake that people can enjoy with food together along with his vinegar. Therefore, in 1934, he began the sake production as well, staying true to his motto of providing Japanese tables with good quality vinegar and sake.
