This video from Akita Shurui Seizoh showcases the craftsmanship and tradition that is behind the "Drink of the Gods". Sake (pronounced "sah-kay") is brewed somewhat like beer, but drinks elegantly like wine - but is truly a unique beverage! About Akita Shurui Seizoh: Small family breweries, dating back to 1656, came together as one to establish Akita Shurui Seizoh (formerly known as Takashimizu).
This boutique sake house is located in Akita, Japan -- a region renowned for its artisan sakes.
Akita Shurui Seizoh handcrafts the Shimizu-No-Mai line of luxury sakes from highly-polished local rice and soft, riverbed water. The brewery's dedication to purity and quality has awarded the brewery twelve consecutive gold medals at Japan's only national sake competition.
