The Kodama brewery was founded in 1879 in Katagami City, Akita Prefecture at the foot of Mt. Taiheizan (“Great Peaceful Mountain”). Blessed with abundant quality rice & fresh clean mountain water, over the generations they have nurtured and developed a renowned expertise in brewing sake. They have developed a modern version of the traditional kimoto method, known as “Akita Kimoto ” that gives the sake depth and acidity. The natural cold temperatures of Akita lead to a long fermentation that gives their sake elegant fragrances and complex aromatics.
