Raifuku Brewery is located in Chikusei City, Ibaraki Prefecture. Omi merchants regularly visited the area; the fourth generation of the Fujimura (藤村) family settled there and founded the brewery in 1716. The brewery started with two brands, Raifuku (来福) and Bandai (万代) and was incorporated in 1971. In 1999, Raifuku began to use local rice exclusively and flower yeast in 2003.

One reason I love this season is the abundance of namazake, unpasteurised sake that shows the "wild character" of the first sake pressed in the year. The Raifuku is no exception. I had never heard of this Ivaraki-based brewery before and was very pleasantly surprised by their hatsushibori. Raifuku seems to have gained some fame by using flower yeast. Flower, as in 'climbing rose' or 'hibiscus', used in the Raifuku Junmai Nama Hatsushibori. Made of Gohyakumanoku rice grown in Ibaraki, it has a wonderful fruity nose with hints of fungi; fruity, elegant flavour, non-sparkling, with moderate acidity. Clear finish. Outstanding.
