Ascertaining the earmark quality of each strain of rice from each farmer, we produce sake that maximizes these traits.
WATER From the Mouth of the Headstream of the Kiso River in Kiso VillageLocated in the southern tip of the Northern Alps, Kiso village lies in the highest peak.

Pumping up abundant water from wells filled with by the headstream of this river, we use this water as our preparatory water.
