Location

Kobe, Japan

Kobe, particularly its Nada District, is famous for being the hub of saké brewing. About 10% of all saké production in Japan is brewed in Nada because of its pristine water sources including; the prized spring water from Mt. Rokko, the famous Miyamizu located in Nishinomiya, as well as ideal climate and proximity to large ports in Kobe and Osaka.

 
Hakutsuru Brewing of Japan

History

SakéMoto is a collaboration between Hakutsuru in Kobe and SakéOne in Oregon. It is brewed in Kobe with Hakutsuru’s proprietary yeast, pristine water, and select rice, while SakéOne provided the research and knowledge of the U.S. market to help fine tune the product’s aroma, body, and flavor profile. The result is a one-of-a-kind premium saké that combines the best of both worlds.
