Producer

Shichiken
The Shichiken brewery is located in Hakushu, a city in the prefecture of Yamanashi (the Southern Alps). It is possible that Hakushu may ring a bell with whiskey lovers, seeing as Suntory's flagship whiskey is also produced here for the very same reason as Shichiken: the quality of the water. The brewery was founded in 1749 and is currently still being managed by the Kitagawara family. The long history as well as the stability of ownership contribute to a production method that values tradition and experience. The result is a  nuanced sake, not flamboyant, not too expressive yet attention-drawing and more importantly, rewarding.
