Emishiki Sake Brewery / Shiga, Japan
CEO Atsunori was born in Niigata, once considered the best sake-producing region, but after he took over his wife's Kura EMISHIKI, he proved that the best sake can be made in Shiga Prefecture. Many breweries have the know-how to make sake, but few can control the flavor as they aim. Of course, sake is a natural product and there are many things that cannot be controlled, but he has the skill, knowledge, and experience to do so."Fortunately, I have experienced many failures and know how to recover from them" he laughs.To prevent the situation where many exported sake is sold in poor condition and tastes completely different, instead of adding additives, they switched all to the kimoto technique, which maintains the quality of the sake at the time of export, but makes it stronger.
