YOSHIMURA HIDEO SHOTEN is located in the middle of wakayamas beautyful mountain range. SInce 1915 the brewerie produces a wide range of premium sake and fruit liquors with ingredients sourced directly at the brewery. Akiko Fujita is the master brewer and one of the few females who work as a toji in Japan. The sake brewed by her are characterized by a beautyful balance of umami, minerality, acidity and fruitiness. The majority of her brews was stored at least three years at temperatures around 5°C. This process gives the sake a wonderful depth and complexity.
