Kirinzan is a sake brewery with more than 170 years of history.

They strive to produce great sake with 100% local ingredients made with the care and attention of all their staff working in harmony.
In ancient China, it was said that a mythical Kirin ‘would appear in the world to signify the coming of a great saint’. Kirinzan pays homage to the spirit with their brand name so that ‘those who drink this sake may be visited upon by many blessings’.
