Yoshida Shuzo - Gassan

The origin of Yoshida Shuzo Brewery dates back to the Edo period in 1743, when the Yoshida family started brewing sake for the famous Hirose clan.

Founded in the town of Yasugi in the Shimane prefecture, the brewery is located in the heart of a mountainous region with lush natural surroundings, and is home to Tomita Castle built on Mount Gassan.

Yoshida Shuzo Sake is made from sake rice grown by a contract farmer in nearby Nishihida, and ultra-sweet water, one of the sweetest in Japan, designated as one of the 100 best waters in Shimane, highly valued by successive lords of the Hirose clan for the traditional tea ceremony.

Today, proud of its 300 year old heritage, Yoshida Shuzo, in addition to producing shochu and fruit liqueurs, produces a wide range of sake bottled under the Gassan brand which means "between the mountain and the moon" in homage to the mountain on which the family had to climb to reach the castle and offer its best sake to the clan lords.
