What do you imagine when you hear the words "Taxi Driver"?

If you are a movie enthusiast, the classic film may come to mind.

""TAXI DRIVER"" is a new brand launched in 2005 by Takuya Fujimura, the fifth-generation brewer of Iwate Prefecture's Kikuzakari Sake Brewery.

The brand was named ""Taxi Driver"" at the suggestion of Yoshiki Takahashi, a designer active in the movie industry.
Taxi Driver became famous not only among sake fans, but also as a sake loved by people from many other fields.

Later, the brewery was destroyed by the March 11 earthquake. Taxi Driver became the trump card to rebuild the brewery.
