Noto, where we live, has been certified as a Globally Important Agricultural Heritage System, I feel great significance in running a sake brewery here. At our company, we use Noto-grown rice for all of our sake, and natural spring water from the mountains of the former Yanagita village for the brewing water. It is our mission to enhance the appeal of Noto through "manufacturing of brewed sake".
Noto rice cultivated with local farmers, super-soft water that springs from the mountains of Noto Town. While appreciating the blessings of nature in Noto, the employees work together to brew sake. This is the commitment of Kazuma Sake Brewery, which has been passed down from generation to generation. In order to protect Noto's satoyama and satoumi, we are also working on "sake brewing from paddy cultivation" using abandoned farmland.
