Yoshinogawa is the oldest saké brewery in Niigata Prefecture. This ancient brewery was founded in 1548 and retains many of its age-old practices while keeping focused on the changes in the world today. Master brewer Takahashi-san focuses his team’s efforts on crafting the finest saké. Together they draw from centuries-old knowledge and techniques to brew diverse styles that each reflect the lush, fertile agricultural region of Niigata.

Niigata Prefecture has a reputation for producing some of the best saké in Japan. A primary reason for this is that Niigata grows some of the best rice in the world. From table rice, all the way to saké-specific rice such as Gohyakumangoku or Koshi Tanrei, Niigata’s abundant and high-quality rice production is legendary, as is demonstrated in the saké from this beautiful prefecture.
