About the maker
Surrounded by the four prefectures of Osaka to the West, Kyoto to the North, Wakayama to the South and Mie to the East, Nara Prefecture can also be considered the historical heartland of sake where centuries ago “Nara-zake” was a term to signify sake of exceptional quality.
Chiyo Shuzo is a very small brewery founded in 1873 which moved to its present location in the southwest part of the Nara basin near the Shinomine mountain range in 1902. Their very small production consists of many, many tiny meigara [brands] which are constantly sought after because of their quality and limited availability. Thanks to Black Market Sake for the notes.See the Chiyo Shuzo collection here
