Collection: Miyoshikiku Brewery

Also known as: Miyoshikiku Shuzo

Japanese name: 三芳菊酒造

From: Tokushima prefecture

Founded in: 1889

Miyoshikiku’s motto is “walk on the wild side”: their target is to create a whole new sake world from the ashes of the “old” one, by setting aside any fixed ideas around the traditional drink and venturing down new taste paths. The current head brewer (toji) abandoned a career as a musician to help his parents in the family sake business, and he is now helped in turn by his young three daughters. Miyoshikiku uses only ingredients from Tokushima prefecture: Yamadanishiki rice, local yeast, underground water from Yoshino river and soft spring water from Matsuo river.
