Saga Prefecture, Japon

The Setou Shuzo Brewery was founded under the name Maruhei Masamune in 1789 by Tajibei Setou. He set up his factory in Shiotacho, Saga Prefecture. In 1920, one of their sake became very well known in the region, Azumacho sake, named after the Japanese Prime Minister at the time, Mr. Takashi Hara! In 1929, Azumacho became the official sake supplier for the Imperial House of Showa Emperor. Setou Shuzo's sake is ultra-clean and above all very rich, with a Kasubuaï, the percentage of Kasu remaining after filtration, really high. An argument that the brewery does not miss to put forward.
