What do you imagine when you hear the words "Taxi Driver"? Perhaps the classic film? "TAXI DRIVER", a brand launched in 2005 by Takuya Fujimura, the fifth-generation brewer of Iwate Prefecture's Kikuzakari Sake Brewery, was given this name at the suggestion of Yoshiki Takahashi, a designer active in the movie industry. After the brewery was destroyed by the March 11 earthquake, love for the now-famous Taxi Driver brand among sake enthusiasts and layman alike allowed Kikuzakari to rebuild and resume operations.
