About Hayakawa Shuzo
Eighty percent of sake is water, so obviously the water is an important part of sake making. Water used in Tabika sake starts its journey at the top of Shuzuku Mountain. As it makes its way to the underground aquifer, which is the well from which Hayakawa draws its water, the journey takes over 30 years. The water runs slowly through granite plates, which act as a filter. The water is incredibly pure and requires no filtration.
