The meaning behind the name ”Suigei”
Similar to how whales gulp water, there is an expression for drinking a lot of liquor ”Geiin (drink like a whale)”. And a drunken whale becomes ”Suigei Shuzo (drunken whale ”sake” brewer)”. The word ”Suigei” originally comes from the head of the Tosa clan, Yodo Yamau whose pen name was ”Geikai Suikou” during the Bakumatsu period. It means ”drunken lord of the ocean where the whales live”. It is said he chose the name for himself, so Lord Yodo must have been quite a ”sake” lover.
Infusing the blessings of the water into ”sake”
”Suigei”, which is named after Lord Yodo who loved ”sake”, is a mellow dry variety that has a strong character.
