Hamada Brewery is located in Yonezawa, Yamagata Prefecture. The Hamada family had been living in the village of Fujisenmura in Dewa Province for some 500 years when Hamada Gozaemon (濱田五左衛門), the 18th-generation head of the family, founded the brewery in 1866 under the trade mark Okimasamune (沖正宗). In 1872, Hamada Shuzōten (浜田酒造店) obtained a sake brewing license, and in 1888, the company started to export its sake to Tōkyō via Nihonmatsu in Fukushima. In 1957, the brewery was renamed Hamada Shuzō Co., Ltd. (田酒造株式会社). In 1973, under director Hamada Jun (濱田淳), who had studied oenology at the University of Bordeaux, the brewery started to produce wine. It established another label for its premium sake, "Faucon", a name derived from Uesugi Takayama (上杉鷹山), the ninth daimyō of Yonezawa Domain.

Very fruity nose of strawberry and green apples, rich and earthy with a fruity nose and slight acidity on the finish. Nice umami, with a good balance of sweetness and acidity. The Miyamanishiki version beats even their Yamadanishiki iteration.
