One Tuesday, September 1st 2020 we visited Kamoizumi Brewery, in Hiroshima prefecture, the famous brewing town of Saijo. Wel met the Maegaki family, rice wholesalers who transitioned into sake brewing at the turn of the 20th century. They established Kamoizumi Brewing Co. in 1912 and in 1967 were one of the first breweries to launch junmai sakes in post-war Japan, a focus they have continued to this day.
To say Kamoizumi sakes have character is an understatement; brimming with individuality they are bold yet elegant, full-bodied with a distinct flavor profile.
We toured and tasted with Kamoizumi’s affable president Kazuhiro Maegaki, toji Toshiki Shintani, and overseas sales representative Guatier Moysset.
They have just recently made this tour video available on Youtube, so we are putting these items again for your enjoyment! Watching and Tasting, of course brings the experience to the next level. But if you just want to sit and watch the tour only, feel free to do so as well!
