Daikoku Masamune has always had a cult-like following in Kobe, Japan, and their brewery had one of the most celebrated water sources for saké brewing. In 1990, the Kobe earthquake destroyed nearly everything at the brewery, but their loyal drinkers included the leadership at Hakutsuru Brewery. When the president of Hakutsuru learned what befell Daikoku Masamune’s brewery, he offered to let them use their facility in Hyogo. Daikoku Masamune took them up on their gracious offer but decided that to keep their saké true to its roots; they brought the water via tanker, from their original source near the old brewery.
