Pursuit of better ”ginjo sake”
Rich aroma, clear aftertaste, profound taste. All of these features are symbolic of the depth of the ”Hayaseura” label of ”Miyake Hikouemon Shoten”. It is a small brewery, and the annual amount of its production is 54,000 liters. However, the name of the brewery spread by word of mouth attracting attention, and has secured fans all around the country.
The 12th generation, Norihiko Miyake is a graduate of Tokyo University of Agriculture, known as the institution where sons of brewery owners gather from around the country. Miyake was frustrated with his family business only making regular types of ”sake”, especially when his college classmates brought in ”ginjo sake” from their breweries. After graduating, he made a decision to start making higher grade premium ”sake” such as ”ginjo sake”.
Using blessings from the land and doing honest work
Miyake told us that the time he spent with the ”kurabito” or brewery workers was very important.
