Nagayama Honke永山本家酒造場

Nagayama Honke was established in 1888 in Ube, Yamaguchi prefecture, at the bottom tip of Honshu Island. The current Kuramoto Takahiro Nagayama, fifth generation president and Toji, first joined the brewery in 2001 with the strong desire to transition to making only Junmai sake. However, at that time, 95% of the sake on the market was Aruten sake, sake with added brewer’s alcohol, and Junmai was not at all fashionable. Since that time, things have changed drastically, and for this we can thank intrepid individuals such as Mr. Takahiro Nagayama for his strong commitment to the pure form of sake.
