3 elements that are commonly held to be crucial in
sake brewing are "Rice","Water"
and "People(brewers)". In addition to
those three, we take into account the importance
of "Sado Island" . Our motto is to brew
sake where the four treasures may work
family crest has "The Four Diamonds",
which stays true to our motto in holding these
principles. We aim to produce a well balanced
sake, using all those elements efficiently.
Sado Island where
MANOTSURU sake is brewed, has been in the
forefront of nature conservation. Particularly,
this island has concentrated its efforts in
conserving Toki, the Japanese crested ibises. An
island that is kind to Toki is kind to humans as
well, creating a safe atmosphere for living.
Such an atmosphere
yields positive results to every process of sake
brewing. On this island, we have been cultivating
Niigata's special sake rice, "Koshitanrei"
and "Gohyakumangoku" with skilled
MANOTSURU sake has
a transparent dryness, with the soft and gentle
taste. Top quality sake rice, soft water,
beautiful nature and climate…MANOTSURU is a
sake that was born from Sado Island.
