Eisen Brewery, located in Bandai, Fukushima, was established in 1869 as Miyamori Eishirō Sake Brewery (宮森榮四郎酒造店) as a branch of Miyamori Bunjirō Sake Brewery (宮森文次郎酒造店) in Aizuwakamatsu. During World War II, the brewery was merged with other breweries and regained its independence in 1953 under the third-generation toji Miyamori Eishirō (宮森榮四郎). In 1988, a new brewing facility was established at the western foot of Mount Bandai with access to water from the Ryugasawa Spring (龍ヶ沢湧水), designated one of Japan's 100 best water sources by the Environmental Agency. The brewery became a subsidiary of Yoshimura Food Holdings Co., Ltd. (株式会社ヨシムラ・フード・ホールディングス) in 2016.

Very mild and light in character, Eisen's Junmai Ginjo is slightly dry but has a presence of umami paired with a delicate aroma. Made of local Toyonishiki rice, Fukushima yeast, and water taken from one of Japan's Top 100 springs, this brew is the epitome of Aizu's sake craftsmanship.
