One thing you could say to make good sake is to use high quality materials - water and rice. Hakkaisan uses “Spring water from Raiden” for all brands of Hakkai mountain. The spiring water is brought to our Kura from the foot of Mt. Hakkai through pipe line. Hakkaisan Brewery was founded in 1922. We are still a relatively new brewery, but following in the footsteps of the first and second generation owners, we have taken on the challenge of quality head on. With our earnest desire to “ pass down the culture of Japanese sake,” Hakkaisan will continue to raise the standards of sake.
