Though the brewery officially became Shimizu Seizaburo Shoten in 1869, the brewery itself is a historic landmark that has survived since ancient times. Located between Kyoto and Ise (a significant location in the Japanese Shinto religion), many travelers on holy pilgrimages have passed through their doors, and the brewery was well-known even in Kyoto to make delicious and sophisticated sake.

Tasting Notes from Sake School of America Specialist:
Using Okayama regional sake rice Asahi-mai, this Zaku Asahi Junmai Daiginjo has a gentle aroma of yellow apple and banana with freshly cooked rice. Smooth and soft entry followed by flavor and mouthfeel expanding on the palate and finishes clean and refreshing. Very food-friendly and complements a wide range of different dishes.
