- Founded in 1902, our company started off as “Nanbu Bijin” in 1951 named after the historical regional name “Nanbu” and the hope of bringing a clear beautiful sake to the world when the market was still full of sweetened low-seimaibuai sake. Our challenge to go abroad started in 1997 and continues until today. We got all our sake certified Kosher in 2013, Vegan in 2019. We plan on continuing brewing beautiful sake combining the past knowleadge with the latest available techniques.
