Like most of the trades, the Japanese sake industry is also clearly in a fix. Sake cannot escape from tax. According to the data of the National Tax Administration Agency, the domestic taxed amount was 3,139,000 goku in 2014 although 3,323,000 goku in 2011. Goku means about 180 liters.

When domestic consumption is on the decrease, there are two ways to choose. One is a reducing the scale. Another is overseas expansion. Emishiki Sake Brewery established in Shiga is one of the breweries that are finding a way out abroad.



Emishiki Monsoon (Raw Unprocessed Sake)

Contains: 720 ml
Made from Rice & Rice Malt
Alcohol: 17
Price: 1,836 JPN (tax in)

Most of their products are named, like “Sensation” and “Monsoon,” not in Japanese but in English for foreign customers although Japanese sake are usually named in Japanese.

Moreover, their official site is perfectly for foreign users. Take a look at the website. You can get they built up the overseas-oriented one using WordPress with all their might though we must be anxious about some contents without a link posted.



Running in pursuit of high quality made them the only brewery which brews nothing but pure sake within Shiga prefecture. Their pose and the overseas orientation came to fruition. Recently, they have exported their sake more.
