SERVING

Okunomatsu Sake Brewery was founded at the beginning of the Edo period (1603–1868). They began as rapeseed oil merchants and by 1716, they were also producing miso, soy sauce, and of course, sake. Since then the spirit of their founder and his pursuit of high-quality sake brewing has been passed on generation to generation. Not only are they known for the quality of their sakes, but also their attention they give to packaging design, resulting in unique bottles.
