NAMI sake – the 1st sake brewed in MEXICO

Posted in Brewery

On 5th Nov., I had a really sensational and great time at the sake seminar held by Mr. Haruo Matsuzaki!

セカイのおSAKEの生き字引、松崎 晴雄先生による【日本酒市民講座・番外編~SAKEは世界の共通語・メキシコ編】が2016年11月5日に恵比寿のメキシカンレストラン「ZONA ROSA」さんで開催されました。それはとても衝撃的な夜でした。

NAMI sake is the 1st sake made in Mexico, in Culiacán, Sonora.
Mr. Koji Yamada, the CEO and the TOJI of Michizakura has been provided technical training and advice for 2 years. At the seminar, we could taste 5 sakes including 2 sakes brewed by only Mexican brewers. It’s really SAKE, it’s amazing.
NAMI は、メキシコで作られる初めての本格的な高品質のSAKE。「三千櫻」の蔵元杜氏、山田 耕司 さんの2年にわたる技術指導を受けています。今回味わうことができた5種のSAKEのうち2つは、山田さんが日本に戻ってきてから、現地のスタッフのみで醸したもの。それが、、、びっくりするほど美味しい!


The top brewer of NAMI is very young Mr.Ernesto Reyes. He was working at a laboratory related food until 2 years ago. yes, It has been only 2 years since his 1st sake experience!
NAMIの醸造のトップ(なんとなくまだ「杜氏さん」とは違う感じがしちゃいます)はまだ20代!お若いErnesto Reyesさん。彼は以前、食品関係の研究をされていて、2年前にNAMIのオーナーに見初められて酒造りに関わることになったとのこと。日本酒を飲んだのは、もちろんその時が初めて✨

The equipments of NAMI are very gorgeous because the passion of the owner is ‘real’. And they had a good fortune to get awesome support by Mr.Yamada.

Mr. Koji Yamada, the CEO and the TOJI of Michizakura

Mr.Ernesto and 2 brewers will train at Michizakura this winter. I believe they will learn not only technical things but also the sprit of sake brewing.

Visiting GOKYO, Sakai brewery in Iwakuni, Yamaguchi pref.

Posted in Brewery

Sakai Brewery brews one of my favorite sake brand GOKYO(五橋). The brewery was established along NISHIKI river in Iwakuni city in 1871 and the name GOKYO comes from the KINTAIKYO(錦帯橋) , a beautiful and historical wooden bridge with well-designed unique five span arches.

平成28醸造年度が始まったばかりのお忙しい時期に、私も大好きな「五橋」 を醸されている酒井酒造さんにお邪魔してきました。酒井酒造さんは1871年、明治4年に岩国の錦川沿いに創業。銘柄名の「五橋」は、錦川にかかる美しい5連の木造の歴史的な橋「錦帯橋」に由来しています。
