Utsukushii Collection 39-year Vintage Set (500 Set Limited Edition) is produced in Yamagata prefecture.
Asahikawa Shuzo
Yamagata Prefecture
This brewery takes its name from the Asahi River, a tributary of the Mogami River in Yamagata Prefecture. It is said that the name Asahigawa Sake Brewery was derived from the uninterrupted flow of water, even during the summer drought season. Like its namesake, Asahigawa Brewery has continued to carry on its long history and traditions without interruption since year 5 of the Bunsei Era. The sake produced in its old-fashioned brewing facility takes a great deal of time and effort, but boasts a taste that can be only attributed to history preserved and passed down through the generations.
