There are so many kinds of Japanese sake, and the number of breweries has already exceed 1,500. So which sake brewery is the best one? Since everyone has their own subjective preferences, so it seems difficult to make a final decision. In view of this, the sake related association "Sakebunka Institute, Inc." has been holding the "World Sakekura Ranking" since 2019, in order to find out the answer objectively. The selection method is very simple: points are added to the brewery according to the number of winning sakes in each competitions. For example, if a sake brewery wins the gold medal in the "Annual Japan Sake Awards", the sake brewery will get 70 points; a gold medal in "Kura Master", the brewery will get 50 points and so on. Finally, all the scores are added up to get the total score of each sake brewery, so as to compare the total scores of different sake breweries in each competition.
The results of this year have been announced on 12/6. Many of the top 50 sake breweries are the popular brands of Saketora, and among them. Let's take a look at which other sake breweries have also achieved good results!
