MIYASAKA Brewing Company was established in 1662 by the Miyasaka family and is located in the picturesque lake town Suwa in Nagano prefecture. Honouring the ancient treasure kept in the local shrine, a bronze mirror, they called their Sake "Masumi", which translates to Transparency or Truth. It was in 1946 that scientists discovered a superior yeast variety occurring naturally in the brewery, creating the outstanding elegance of the Sake. Brewing Association Yeast Nr. 7 soon became the favourite and widely used among brewers all over Japan. The new MIYASAKA7 series honours and highlights the special characteristics of the brewery and its natural resources.
