Blessed with the heaven-sent Miya Spring Water, superior brewer’s rice and the experience of master brewers
from the province of Tamba, Nada garnered the title of Japan’s foremost Sake producing region around the 18th Century.
Sawanotsuru was founded in 1717 in Nishigo, one of the five area of Nada also formerly known as Minume.
It is from this port,(Minume no Ura), that “Nada no ki ippon” was shipped all over Japan, dominating the domestic market.
Today, the age-old brewing techniques of Sawanotsuru have brought about a revival of the traditional Kimoto brewing method, a brewing method that is defined to draw out full, natural flavor of the rice.
Savor the true essence of Nada style brewing kept over summer to produce a full-bodied and rich flavor known as Akibare.
The primary ingredients of Japanese
Sake are rice and water
(there is also pure Sake made only
from rice and water) and in the past,
brewing regions throughout Japan
have nearly almost always been located
near famous rice producing areas.
Of the varied rice strains used
in the Sake brewing process,
brewer’s rice is the most ideal
owing to its larger grain size, weight
and larger white core.
Each Sake brewing region in Japan
has its own source of pure water
used in the brewing process.
Among these are several sources
included in the list of top 100
pure water sources designated
by the Japanese government.
One of the more well-known
water sources on this list is
Nada-Miya Spring Water,
sourced from the coastal fringes
to the east of Hyogo Prefecture.
The purest water and finest quality
rice amounts to nothing without
the skill of the master brewer to
draw out its full potential.
Sawanotsuru embraces traditional
brewing methods passed down over
a long history and these methods
still form the cornerstone of brewing
today. measured skill and experience.
And, it is the Toji, or brew master
who oversees these processes.
The Toji must be a person of integrity
who in addition to having extensive
experience, is also required to have
strong leadership and management
qualities and sound judgment.
