Small family sake breweries, dating back to 1656, came together in 1944 to reestablish themselves as Akita Shurui Seizoh Company.  The credo of the brewery is a simple set of beliefs: we value quality first, we are one with the land on which we stand, and our sake is a reflection of the toji spirit.  

Akita Shurui Seizoh Co. is located in Akita, Japan - one of the country’s top regions, known for producing excellent artisan sake.  The brewery maintains this honor, and is proud to have won ten consecutive gold medals at the “National New Sake Awards,” the only national sake competition in Japan.  They are the only sake house in the history of this prestigious competition to have won this number of consecutive gold medals.
