A True Labor of Love

A True Labor of Love

Embracing the painstaking process of hand-pressing the sake, we eschew machines to delicately draw out the purest, most exquisite flavor from plum. Within each, carefully pressed drop lies an unmatched, authentic taste transcending time. Indulge in the harmonious symphony of sweetness, acidity, and a pleasing bitterness as it graces your palate.

We take pride in our traditional handcrafted process of making plum wine, avoiding the use of machines to extract the purest and most delicate flavors gently.

Savor our plum wine, created by immersing carefully selected plums in Japanese sake for a year, which offers a unique umami taste that is pure and unadulterated.

The brewery's philosophy

With our unrivaled sake craftsmanship, our mission is to impart the authentic taste and allure that sets us apart from our mass-produced counterparts, delivering an extraordinary experience to satisfy even the most demanding of connoisseurs.

A Rare Traditional Japanese Brewing Technique

We use the Hanegi Shibori technique, whereby the fermented sake base is carefully placed into sake bags, then laid out within a large purpose-built frame.
A lid is placed on top, and an enormous wooden beam is suspended from the ceiling. Utilizing the weight of the beam and the delicate principle of leverage, the sake is gently and meticulously extracted under subtle pressure.

An Authentic Taste Crafted by Skilled Artisans

Our process lacks a manual; instead, our skilled artisans rely on their intuition to determine the pressing method and work hours.
While the flavor may vary each year, the common thread that binds them all is the authentic taste crafted by the experienced hands of our artisans.
