Koshimeijyo Co.,Ltd



Koshimeijo brewery was first established in 1845 in the city of Nagaoka, Niigata. However, the current brewing facility was developed in 1930 after a merger of 2 local brewing companies.  The small village of Tochio gets heavy snowfall all winter long which makes it an ideal location for slow, controlled, cold temperature brewing.  Yamashiroya is one of three brands produced by Koshimeijo and the only brand available outside of Niigata.  

All Yamashiroya sake are developed exclusively through the Kimoto process.  The theme of the brand is “Wabi-Sabi”, a term describing a Japanese aesthetic which recognizes the beauty in what is not perfect, that which is simple, modest and ruled by nature.
