Founded in 1548, Yoshinogawa is the eighth oldest existing saké brewery in Japan and the very first saké brewery to be established in the now famed Niigata Prefecture (North and West of Tokyo, along the sea of Japan). The knowledge of multiple centuries goes into crafting each bottle of Yoshinogawa saké. Every sip is a representation of a lush agricultural region, deep winter snows, abundant pristine water and the pure love of the craft. Yoshinogawa takes pride in using its local resources to craft the best expression of their region’s natural beauty and bounty.
