いい酒だけを造り続けて260年 柏露酒造 hakuro sake brewery

Hakuro Sake Brewery

Takashi Akiike

Since its foundation in 1751, HAKURO SHUZO has been playing a part of sake culture surviving rapid changes in history in Echigo-Nagaoka, present Nagaoka city, Niigata prefecture.
In 1882, given over a brewery owned by the lord of Nagaoka clan, the MAKINO family, it started to use the family’s crest, “Mitsu-Kashiwa” and succeeded a brand name “HAKURO”.
As time goes by, people engaged in sake production have changed, but our posture to “produce delicious sake to please many people” has been maintained till now.

Message

Founded in 1751, HAKURO SHUZO has been succeeded for 266 years. Sake production of “HAKURO” has been handed down by many Tojis and craftsmen with the spirits of the founders, the lord of the MAKINO family and Ecchu-ya, Ecchu shop. While succeeding the posture and skills for producing good sake, HAKURO SHUZO will continue to make improvements to change itself with the times. To play a role in it, I will take over sake production from the former experienced Toji. Although I have a limited experience as a Toji, I will devote myself to sake production in cooperation with co-workers.


Our brand series, “SANZUI” was born recently. A part of Chinese character, Sanzui represents water and is used to add to other Chinese characters to make meanings. It expresses the starting point of sake production that when water regarded as life of a brewery meets traditional technique, sake can be brewed.


We, all workers of HAKURO SHUZO will continue to produce our sake “HAKURO” with our whole heart and smile so that it will make people smile. We all are looking forward to making you smile with our sake.
