Company Infomation

Message from the President

I am highly honored to have been appointed as President of Kiku-Masamune Sake Brewing Co., Ltd., and at the same time, to have succeeded to the name Jiroemon Kano, the professional name passed down over the generations to the head of the Kano family.

Our company was founded in 1659. After enduring the sufferings of war and natural disasters, including earthquakes, the company marks its 358th year in 2017. I would like to take this opportunity to extend my deepest gratitude to those who love our sake and those involved in making it.

We devote ourselves every day to putting into practice our corporate philosophy, “Contribute to the rich and healthy lives of people using our long fostered fermentation techniques as our core.” We cherish the Kimoto method, a traditional sake brewing method that has long been handed down in Nada since the Edo period, but also continue to take the initiative in technological innovation.

All of us at Kiku-Masamune Sake Brewing will unite to “create new value through tradition and innovation.”
