The brewery, Sakata Shuzo, is located in Sakata city, Yamagata prefecture, which has been historically known as one of the most prosperous ports in Japan. Sakata Shuzo was established in 1949, from a coalition of five breweries which have been around since the Edo period. Currently, the president, Shoichi Sato, takes the leading role as the Toji, or master brewer, conducting the brewing process with dedication and uncompromising ways.
Yuzu-shu is Japan’s native limoncello. Jokigen sources organic yuzu citrus from Kochi prefecture and mixes with premium sake and pure distillate for a refreshing and zesty beverage. Excellent on its own at 8% ABV or to give a bit of zip to a cocktail.
