Homare Brewery is located in Kitakata, Fukushima Prefecture, just north of Aizuwakamatsu. It was founded by Karahashi Kōsaku (唐橋幸作) in 1918, a rice wholesaler and miso and kōji manufacturer, who took over the brewery, renaming it Kano Sake Brewery (加納酒造株式会社) and, later, Homare Sake Brewery (ほまれ酒造株式会社).

The representative brand name 'Aizu Homare' was named after the Aizu region and 'Homare' in hiragana because it was easy to read and remember. At the time, using hiragana for sake brands was quite rare. The typeface of 'Aizu Homare' was written by the modern calligrapher Tenrai Hidai, born in Nagano Prefecture.

The Black Label was also released in Homare's Kiwami series. While the brewery uses Gohyakumangoku rice for the White Label, the rice variety for the Black Label is not disclosed. The Kiwami series boasts mild and affordable Daiginjo. The Black Label is sweet and mellow, with a creamy and soft texture, slight dryness and acidity. Short finish with a tinge of spiciness—an everyday sake, in the literal sense. :)
