Producer

Amabuki
Amabuki was founded in 1688 in the prefecture of Saga, located on the southern island of Kyushu. The brewery has thus been in operation for 330 years. Throughout this long history, it has always stayed true to its ideals of forging a close connection to  nature and protecting the environment. The water used comes from the Seburi mountains, and contrary to most breweries, who source their rice from dedicated suppliers, Amabuki cultivates various rice varieties itself. They furthermore chose not to use the yeast cultures provided by the Brewing Society of Japan, opting for flower blossom yeast instead. These give a wonderful aromatic intensity to the sake produced, contributing to its unique character.
