History of sake brewery
It was in 1871 that the Shinohara family, which originated from chief priest of Kunitsuhikonomikoto Shrine, began brewing.
In 1951, the current name of the company was “Sakura Uzumaki Sake Brewery Co., Ltd.”.
The sake name "Sakura Uzumaki" comes from the fact that "Hachitakeyama", the mountain forest we owned, was a famous place for cherry blossoms.In addition, the name of the newspaper novel that the third-generation owner loved reading was "Uzumaki", so this name was used.
In 1959, he obtained a shochu manufacturing license.
Shochu production has a history of more than 50 years.
