No satisfaction in pursuing at the best Sake brewing.

日本語サイトへ
True taste at its best from Koryo-gura in Nara, the birthplace of sake.
 
Our brewery

Choryo Shuzo is located in Koryo-cho to the north-west of Nara which is said to be the birthplace of Sake.
Koryo-cho is surrounded by historic heritages: the shrine dedicated to the God of Sake "Omiwa Jinja" to the east, the holy site of Buddhism origin Asuka-ji to the south, and Horyu-ji temple nominated as a "World Heritage" to the north.
The philosophy of our sake brewing is based on "Shou-dou-mu-kyu-kyoku"(Self- satisfaction shall be avoided for one can always better themselves.) We have been dedicating ourselves to brewing sake that would be appreciated by customers and therefore we pay special attention to rice, water, people and sake brewing.

Yoshinosugi no Tarusake

 

Sake brewing

Once upon a time, all sake used to be called Tarusake.
Tarusake is Japanese cedar barrel-flavored sake.
From the beginning of the Edo Period to the end of the Meiji Period (17th – 19th centuries), sake was normally stored in barrels called taru made of cedar. Therefore, in those days sake was simply called tarusake. In 1964, Choryo succeeded in making an excellent tarusake using Yoshino cedar barrels. Since then, for almost 50 years we have been making tarusake in the same traditional way.
