INTRODUCING: Fujiichi Shuzo

One of our most exciting recent discoveries, the 'Kikutaka' Sakes have arrived.

Fujiichi Shuzō was founded in 1870 and is located north-west of Nagoya in Inazawa City. The Toji [Master Brewer] here is Katsuaki Yamamoto, who took over the head brewer role in 2012. In the short time he has been Toji, Yamamoto-san has quickly placed Fujiichi Shuzo on the Sake ‘map’ with the creation of the ‘Kikutaka’ brand. With this range of products under the Kikutaka label he concentrates on creating Sake with a lot of umami and acidity. This is achieved by meticulous work in the Koji room, where he strives to have every individual grain of rice fully coated before being used in Sake production. This level of care and work ethic has ensured the ‘Kikutaka’ brand as being one of the most sort after in the growing domestic landscape of Sake appreciation.

We are excited to offer these amazing Sake in Australia for the first time and also the first country outside of Japan to receive these products as Fujiichi Shuzo have never exported before now.
