Sawada Shuzo

About Sawada Shuzo

Persistently in pursuit of making the finest sake through the use of traditional manual techniques and tools including wagama, kigoshiki and kōjibuta. Since its inception in 1848, the first year of the Kaei Era, Sawada Shuzo based in a pottery town named Tokoname in Chita Peninsula continues to embrace its long history as premium sake brewery by retaining the good old traditional skills applied in the fully hand-made production to this day. HAKUROU is born from the earnest interaction between the brewer and the microorganisms living in kōji (cultured rice with kōji fungus) and kōbo (yeast) that have been created from carefully selected rice and water.
