Masumi Miyasaka Brewery.
Masumi Sake is a well-known premium Japanese sake brand produced by the Miyasaka family in Suwa, Nagano, Japan. Miyasaka Brewing Company has been producing sake for over 350 years, and its Masumi brand has become one of the industry's most well-known.
Masumi is famous for the excellent "Number Seven" yeast variety, which was discovered at the brewery over 70 years ago and is still the most commonly used sake yeast in the world, in addition to its many domestic and international awards for highest quality. Masumi No. 7 yeast is well-known for producing sake with delicate floral and fruity aromas and a smooth, well-rounded flavour.
The Miyasaka family served as samurai to the lords of the Suwa area. However, following years of strife between the Suwa clan and warlords Takeda Shingen and Oda Nobunaga during the Warring States period (16th century), the family gave up its swords and turned to sake making. The brewery was firmly established by 1662 and had drawn the praise of several historical figures. Matsudaira Tadateru, sixth son of the first Tokugawa Shogun and part-time resident of Suwa, was so fond of it that he always kept it by his side. And Otaka Gengo, one of Japan’s famous 47 ronin warriors, praised its smooth taste. The family still has several items from these men, such as a lacquer sake cup from Matsudaira and an embossed seal box from Otaka.
