We had a special visitor, Mr Andre Bishop, Melbourne based Sake Samurai and an owner of a sake bar and a few Japanese restaurants, last week.
We have met at the Sake and Food Expo held by JFC Australia in Melbourne in December last year. The Expo was successful with lots of visitors including a Cheese specialist Mr Will Studd.
Mr Bishop has come to Japan more than 20 times and has visited lots of sake breweries throughout Japan, so he has deep knowledge of sake.
We have shown him the main brewery in Shiogama and it was our great pleasure having him!
We hope to further promote Urakasumi sake in Australia this year!
Happy New Year!!
In this New Year's season, the brewery is having a busy time brewing Daiginjo-shu (super premium sake), and today was the first day to press Daigino-shu for this season!
For Daiginjo-shu, the moromi mash is put into cotton bags and those bags are placed one by one by hand by our brewery workers.
