Website
Located in Suzaka, Nagano Prefecture, the brewery was founded in 1864 for the local Suzaka clan and began to supply sake to the clan's head. Since then, from the second to the fifth generation, we have inherited the intention of the first brewer, Endo Tokusaburo (遠藤徳三郎), to make delicious sake and continue to make sake to brew and nurture. Although our leading brand, "Yoro Masamune," has been awarded the Medal with Yellow Ribbon, we could not take advantage of the sake boom in the 1970s, and as a small brewery, Endo struggled to keep their quality. In 1982, the sixth generation, Endo Shuzaburo (遠藤秀三郎), became the head of the brewery at the young age of 21. At this time, there were only three employees. While starting to improve existing products, the brewery launched one of its leading brands, "Keiryū", in 1988. New brands followed, including the still-popular Asashibori, Domuroku, Naotora and Comet.

In 1993, the brewery was awarded the "Nagano Prefecture Sake Competition Governor's Prize" (長野県清酒品評会県知事賞 Nagano-ken seishu hinpyō-kai kenchiji-shō). In 2004, Endo won its first gold medal in the "Monde Selection". In 2014, the brewery celebrated its 150th anniversary.

Sometimes, it's only fair to revisit the odd sake and set things straight. While we uphold our first review of Endo's Betsuatsura, we were pleasantly surprised when we tried it this time: while definitely mild and light-bodied, we did not find it as thin as the first time. It has a subtle but elegant taste and makes for a fabulous food sake.

This sake was produced on behalf of Mitsubishi Food in what is known as their Junmai Daiginjo series. Previous breweries tasked by MF were Asabiraki and Fukumitsuya. The Keiryu has a nose of fruits, pudding, and vanilla. Medium textured, medium dry and light-bodied, it has good characteristics but was a little thin for our liking. Decent and reasonably priced.
