Emishiki Shuzo笑四季酒造株式会社

Emishiki roughly translates as the “Laughter of the Four Seasons” & the lively camaraderie among Owner/Toji ,Takeshima-san & the brewery personnel is vividly captured in the 笑四 range of sakes. With just 3 full-time employees, the focus of Emishiki is on re-discovering the romance of Sake Brewing, adopting only the ancient Kimoto method alongside the laborious Funa-Shibori (non-mechanical) pressing method. All rice used across the Emishiki range of sakes are cultivated in Shiga Prefecture, also highly renowned its beautifully marbled & highly prized Omi Wagyu. Using a range of yeast strains, which include kyokai (association), hana kobo isolated from flowers & proprietary strains isolated by the Toji, an eclectic range of aromas & flavour profiles present themselves, albeit playfully in this modern line-up.
