Founded in 1881, Kikusui is located in Niigata, Japan’s number one rice production area.
We cultivate the grace of the earth with gratitude and conscience to create spiritually enriching lifestyles. Our roots are firm in this region, and we will continue to contribute to people’s health, refreshment and enjoyment through cultivating the blessings of the earth with the power of fermentation that has been fostered since our founding, and by taking advantage of the traditional Japanese culture that has been passed down to us. The Kikusui Institute for Sake Culture embodies this commitment.
Kikusui has been awarded many gold prizes for its new-brew Sake in some of Japan’s most authoritative competitions, which judge the quality of new Sake produced in breweries throughout Japan.
