Kinshihai Shuzo

Tucked into the valleys of Gosen in northern Niigata prefecture, Kinshihai Shuzo’s history as a brewery dates to 1825 when the area was ruled by the Muramatsu clan. This small family brewery produces limited batches in the great Niigata style known as tanrei-karakuchi, “light and dry”.

Brewmaster Noboru Abe prefers to work only with locally grown rice varietals like Gohyaku-Mangoku and the unique S-3 yeast to produce soft, light and elegant sake that has won numerous awards and both tastings within Japan and around the world.
