About Brewer

Having drawn critical acclaim and numerous accolades – both within Japan and abroad – this producer has one of the highest-valued sake cellars in the world. Little wonder that it was chosen for the toast and served among the G7 leaders during the 2016 summit held in Ise-Shima. Founded in 1869, the brewery takes advantage of the pristine subterranean water and fertile fields of the Ise Plain – Mie Prefecture – despite which it is the only one to remain operating in the Suzuka region. A commitment to locally-grown rice and small-scale batch brewing, and dedication to craft sake that matches with a variety of modern cuisines, have earned them a legion of fans, including football player Hidetoshi Nakata.

Origin of brand

Because of the brewer’s thought “The value of sake is made by all people related from the time of independence from brewery to mouths of drinkers.” , this sake was named “Zaku”, which means creating. “Miyabi” means to be elegant and graceful. “Satori”, the name of Kanji from Toji Mr. Tomohiro Uchiyama.

About Product

With a pressing method, the primary mash – moromi – is bagged and suspended, thereby relying on the force of gravity alone to act as a press, and yielding a small volume of exceptional quality sake. With a polish rate of 40%, this is the premium incarnation of Zaku. Both aroma and flavor are lavish yet abound with a sense of clarity. Featured as the toast at the G7 summit in Ise-Shima, 2016.
