Kamonishiki Shuzo



Steering the ship at Kamonishiki brewery is Yuichi Tanaka Toji, the master brewer, having achieved the position of head brewer of his family’s sake business when he was just 23.  As a young brewer he is full of ambition and passion to make delicious sake that will appeal to the modern person who has a diverse palate and subsists on a varied, international diet.  

He dedicates time daily to tasting and studying the sake of the most popular brands in attempts to firmly grasp the intricacies of what makes a sake sought after.  

Niigata Prefecture, where Kamonishiki has been a functioning sake brewery in Kamo city since its establishment in 1893, is a region most known for its distinctively clean and bone dry style of sake, Tanrei Karakuchi.
