  • The rice for these sake is sourced from one of the top growers of Yamada Nishiki in Japan.
  • Kyoto is the birthplace of sake and because of its amazing water (Fushimi mizu) that comes from the eastern mountains of Japan.

Konteki is one of Japan’s smallest breweries, creating these Daiginjo sakes with Japan’s highest quality rice and local Fushimi mizu—the soft, pure water found in Japan’s Eastern Mountains. Highly-respected rice farmer Masayasu Tanaka carefully works the naturally fertilized soils of his farm in eastern Tottori prefecture to grow some of Japan’s best quality Yamada Nishiki, considered the pinnacle of premium sake rice.
