YONEDA SHUZO - SHIMANE PREFECTURE
The history of Yoneda Shuzo officially began in Meiji 29 (1896) in the Matsue region of Shimane Prefecture. The particular geography of the region has earned it the nickname of "Mizunomiyako", the city of water. It is bordered by the sea to the north, Lake Shinjiko to the west and Lake Nakaumi to the east, while to the north and south lie the Kitayama Sanchi and Chugoku Sanchi mountains. Matsue thus boasts a wealth of natural resources, as well as a rich history of political events, trade and cultural contributions. Over the centuries, this has given rise to a unique and sophisticated culinary tradition, of which Yoneda Shuzo's brewery is an integral part. The products we have selected are intimately linked to this rich culture: a unique cooking sake and an exceptional Mirin.
