On 24th Oct., the 20th sake salon of the sake2020 project was held with Shinichiro Shimizu, the president of the brewery in Mie prefecture.

ZAKU sakes

“Zaku” is undeniably one of the most popular and well-known brands of sake available in the market today. “Shimizuseizaburo-Shoten,” the brewery which makes “Zaku” is located in Mie prefecture in Suzuka city, which is also famous as a location of the “Suzuka Circuit,” a Formula One racetrack. Blowing down from the mountains, the cold, winter wind called “Suzuka Oroshi” helps give “Zaku” its clear, crisp taste.

The bottle design of ZAKU IMPRESSION is traditional ISE-KATAGAMI. It’s so beautiful.

Very sophisticated, fruity aroma and the delicate, clear taste of “Zaku” has been popular with sake fans for a long time, but its popularity surged after it was chosen as the Kampai sake of the 2016 G7 Summit held at a beautiful coastal resort in Mie prefecture.

Ise Shrine

Mie prefecture is typically less well known outside of Japan but it is the home of Ise Shrine, a very sacred shrine of great cultural and historical significance to the Japanese people. Since Edo times, people have made a pilgrimage to Ise Shrine and for many people it is the dream of a life time to visit there. The constant flow of visitors to Ise Shrine has led to the development of a rich food culture which includes delicious Matsuzaka Beef and Matoya Oysters. With great food you can often find great sake and Mie is no exception.
