About Kanbai Shuzo

Our sake was born nearly one-hundred years ago, in 1918. The founder and landowner, Jiro Iwasaki bore the sake that was far superior to the local plain rice. It has been said that Iwasaki approached sake-making in a playful manner. Sake-making can become very rigorous and at times, unenjoyable. But we strive to keep Iwasaki’s values alive by keeping our playful and enjoyable spirits while making sake. To remain true to our founder, we continue to make our sake seriously, passionately, and diligently. We believe that our brewery’s values are transmitted into the taste and quality of our sake.
