While organic sake made its debut years ago, sustainability has reached the sake industry, too. On 20 October, Fukuju Brewery in Nada, Kobe, will release its Fukuju Junmaishu Eco Zero, the world's first sake with zero carbon dioxide emission in its entire production process. To achieve this, the brewery used 100% renewable energy and carbon-neutral city gas in the production. Also, a low rice polishing rate of just 70-80% assures that less energy is used, while dried yeast shortens the brewing period by seven days.
Situated in the Nada region of Kobe, Japan, the Fukuju brewery will release a sustainable sake with zero carbon emission this autumn.
