ISHIMOTO BREWERYLEARN MORE
Ishimoto Brewery is also known as Koshi no Kanbai, meaning Winter Plum of Koshino (an old name for the Niigata region). Named after the beautiful, hearty winter plum that is a frequent subject of art and poetry with its delicate flowers blooming in the cold of January and February on snow-laden branches, the tree is a symbol of both beauty and perseverance. Koshi no Kanbai has braved numerous dire eras such as rice shortages during the two wars in the Showa Period, but throughout, they made a point of never lowering their standards, always choosing quality over quantity.
