About the brewery:​


The Watanabe Sake Brewery (渡邉酒造) is a small Tochigi sake brewery located in the village of Susagi in the Yamizo Mountains in Otawara City (formerly Kuroha Town). The brewery is one of Tochigi's best-known breweries and has achieved excellent results every year in the National New Sake Competition, as well as in the Nanbu Tōji Home-brewed Sake Competition, which has a history of around 100 years. The brewery's young managing director, Mr Hidenori Watanabe, is a master brewer with a great sense of style, using limpid brewing water from the subsoil of the Takemogawa River flowing from Mount Yamizo, high-quality local rice, and a cool climate that drops to -10°C or lower during the cold season. It is overwhelmingly popular in the local area. About 90% of its production is consumed in the northern part of the prefecture, including Kuroba, and it is a rare brew that cannot be found outside the prefecture, even in southern Tochigi.
