Asahi Shuzo - Kubota

With its 35th year anniversary, Kubota has revamped the JDG. According to their in-house research, the Kubota name recognition is fairly high at 90%, even among non-sake drinkers, but amongst young people in their 20's, it drops to 60%. To compete with the natural wines and craft gins that pulls in the younger generation, Kubota decided their JDG needed a drastic re-branding. They came out swinging with this new bottle. Gone was the traditional Japanese washi label, and in with the all-black, modern, sleek packaging with English wording. It still has the same qualities that makes this JDG great; light, clean, and dry, but with a little hidden peep of sweetness at the end.

Asahi Shuzo was founded in 1830 with the motto, "Quality First." They believe that the quality of rice is the utmost importance in sake brewing; as one of their past Toji put it succinctly: "The quality of sake cannot go beyond the quality of the ingredients." Asahi Shuzo spends a vast amount of energy and time into rice making, they've even founded an agricultural production corporation, Asahi Noken, where they research to preserve Japan's national agriculture and produce better sake rice.
