Highlight of Watanabe Brewery

Together with the local rice "Hida Homare", their sake is famous for being mellow and sweet. Up until now, they still insist on making sake by hand, so each of their products shows strong characteristics and is very limited.

Hightlights of Miyashita Brewery
Established in 1915, Miyashita Brewery is currently located in Okyama City, with more than a 100-year history. They adopt the water from Asahi River, one of the three major rivers in the region, which is stunningly clean and desirable for sake brewing. In ancient Japanese literature, some poets would refer "Good Sake" to "Saint". Their brand of sake is thus named after, "Kiwami-Hijiri", which literally means "the Greatest Saint" and denotes "the Best Sake". Their name definitely reflects what they have been pursuing at all times - they have become a regular gold prize winner at the Annaul Japan Sake Awards since 1989.
