In order to understand why this brewery is so special, we need to take a quick dive into the world of Liquor Tax Act in Japan.

Back in the 1980's, the word "Ginjo" was fairly unknown to the regular sake drinker. The very few Ginjos that were commercially sold were incredibly expensive, and usually bought only to be given as gifts. Click to learn more.
