Hakutsuru Sake of America, Inc
Welcome to Hakutsuru Saké, Japan's #1 producer, estab.1743
Founded in 1743, Hakutsuru is one of the oldest saké producers in Japan. We are located in the Nada district of Kobe, a leading saké production area known throughout Japan and the world.
Our saké benefits from excellent water sources including pristine spring water from Mt. Rokko. This, along with advanced brewing technologies, allows us to make a variety of excellent saké, from quality Futsu to silky Nigori to delicate Junmai Daiginjo.
Kobe, particularly its Nada District, is famous for being the hub of saké brewing. About 10% of all saké production in Japan is brewed in Nada because of its water sources, ideal climate cycles and proximity to large ports in Kobe and Osaka. Among these various saké breweries stands Hakutsuru, the largest saké producer in Japan.
One of Hakutsuru’s defining characteristics is its tireless pursuit of innovation. From diving deep into research of its water sources, building its own research facility for proprietary yeast, to developing its own unique saké-specific rice: Hakutsuru Nishiki, Hakutsuru has always strived to be at the forefront of saké brewing.
We invite you to discover our extensive portfolio of uncompromising saké. Kanpai!
