We would like to express our deepest gratitude for your continued patronage.

Today, June 12th, the “SAKE COMPETITION 2024” winning sake announcement and award ceremony was held at The Peninsula Tokyo.
“Hakurakusei Tokubetsu Junmai” won 2nd place in the junmai sake category and received the special award and Diners Club Youth Encouragement Award.

“SAKE COMPETITION” has been held since 2012 with the philosophy of “setting a new standard so that consumers can have more access to truly delicious sake, regardless of brand.”
The judging method is a competition where the brand is completely hidden and the sake is judged only on the quality of the sake.

We are very honored to have received such a prestigious award at such an exhibition.
This was all thanks to everyone’s support, and we would like to express our sincere gratitude.

In order to live up to this award, all of our brewers will continue to work hard to produce even better quality sake.
