OBATA SHUZO is located on Sado Island in Niigata. Starting with pure, high quality groundwater, and world-famous rice, Sado Island has become known as an excellent place to produce sake.
Since Manotsuru’s founder Yososaku Obata had estblished OBATA SHUZO in 1885, They have been using the traditional hand-made methods for more than a hundred years, with great appreciation for the abundant nature that surrounds us on Sado.
Obata produces a rich, full bodied, and fragrant like wine, junmai-ginjo. The brewmaster lives in the brewery for several months during sake- making season to thoroughly manage the fermentation in early morning.
