Nate Shuzo 名手酒造
Since the beginning of the Ginjo craze in the 1980’s, Nate Shuzo has maintained a strong focus on small batch, quality brewing in line with the demand for high quality, hand crafted sake. The backbone of Kuroushi Sake is its exceptional and sacred water, drawn from the well of the Nakagoto Shrine just 100 meters from the brewery. The mineral content of this soft water is ideally suited for strong fermentation and results in sake high in umami amino acids. Also important to the quality of the Kuroushi sake brand is its commitment to contract rice farming to ensure its ability to brew with high grade Yamadanishiki sake rice, sourced from the most famous rice growing areas in Japan.
