Koikawa Sake Brewery, founded in 1725, is located in Amarume, Yamagata Prefecture, surrounded by rice paddies in the Shonai Plain of Yamagata Prefecture. The region is the birthplace of Kamenoo rice, the root of Koshihikari, Sasanishiki, Akita Komachi, Hitomebore, Tsuyahime and other famous rice varieties well-known among sake lovers. In this blessed environment, the brewery uses the rice produced by the brewers and the brewery's underground water to create a true jizake. The brewery started producing exclusively Junmai in 2015.

Koikawa uses Gohyakumangoku rice for the Beppin, characterised by a light and refreshing taste and great versatility as far as drinking temperatures are concerned. The Beppin has a fruity nose of green apples and pears with hints of koji. Boasting a light body with a strong presence of umami, it is well-rounded, mild, and pleasantly dry. Much smoother at room temperature.
