Takasago Shuzo - Kokushi

Takasago Shuzo, founded in 1899 by the Kohiyama family, is located on the island of Hokkaido in the city of Asahikawa, northern Japan. Originally named Kohiyama Shuzo, it was not until 1965 that the brewery adopted the name Takasago Shuzo.

Built in a region with a cold and snowy climate, it benefits from pure water coming from the snow melt of Mount Taisetsu which flows to Asahikawa and accumulates in the Kamikawa basin.

Respectful of its environment, the brewery has taken advantage of the harsh climatic conditions by drawing inspiration from the snowy landscape to develop a method of filtration carried out under ice domes that are rebuilt every winter.

Made from rice grown locally on the island of Hokkaido, Takasago sakes are pure and fresh, with Kokushi Muso created in 1975 as its proud representative.
