The terroir of sake. Sake prepared with water and rice from Yosano.

Since it was founded in 1887, the underground water of the Oeyama Mountain Range, which is behind the sake brewery, has been used as the water source. The sake made at Yosamusume is gentle and easy to drink, due in part to the pure and soft water. This brewery has passed down brewing techniques through six generations now, with new sake always being created (now with a lineup of thirty types).
The focus of Yosamusume is to make “sake unique to this area”, where local ingredients, people, and climate are blended. The sake incorporates specially cultivated Yamada Nishiki rice grown in Yosano, collaborations with local farmers to make sparkling sake using fruit juices made from locally produced pears and apples. Adapting to changing tastes and environments, Yosamusume continues to produce fresh, delicious sake year after year.

from the brewer:
"I graduated from my university's department of brewing and shortly after became the sixth generation brewer at Yosamusume. I strive to make sake that matches the times and conveys the charm of the region. I want to develop one or two kinds of new sake every year!
For those who have a chance to visit the brewery or hear from our brewers, I think it's also a great opportunity to learn about the town of Yosano. Feel free to drop by!
