About the maker
Ishikawa is known for it’s fertile rice-producing areas and is one of Japan’s premiere Sake making regions, with many of its over 35 Sake breweries having been in existence for hundreds of years.
The Yuho range are brewed to be sake that is full of flavour and umami, with well balanced acidity that can be paired with richer style dishes. Toshi-san has utilised yeast strain #9 to help create this balance, along with making sure the fragrance is not too pronounced. Working alongside her father who is the Company Manager, Fujita-san has not only became Company President but has also become a Sake Brewer. She works alongside their Toji [Master Brewer] Toshi Yokomichi, who joined the kura in 2006, to create a new range of sake known as ‘Yuho’.See the Mioya Shuzo collection here
