Miyake Sake Brewery
We have brewed sake for 202 years.
Miyake Sake Brewery was established in 1819 by the founder, Saijiro Miyake,in the northern area of Rokkosan-mountain. In this small area, there are three villages and has been famed as a district for special sake rice. In one of the three villages, our family has continued to brew sake for 202 year. Shin-ichiro, the 6th head of the family, manages the company today. Ayaka, the first female head in family history, are going to inherit the company next summer as the 7th leader in the family.
Our craft approach to sake brewing has not been changed since it was founded. We have traditionally valued the locality and have not compromise on quality. We always use both groundwater of local small river, Manganji river, and special rice, Yamada-nishiki, grown with the same water. We emphasize “made and supplied in the local area" like Terroir tradition in wine production.
