Kinoshita Shuzō is located near the coast of northern Hyogo, in a small town called Kyotango. In 1842 the prestigeous brewery was founded, the name Tamagawa translates to “river of jewels” which derives from the Kawakamidani river that is located directly next to the brewery. Master brewer Philip Harper is born in England, and the only non-japanese toji (master brewer) in Japan. His sake are edgy and highly complex, while being just fun to drink! For Kinoshita Shuzō freshly pressed sake is just the beginning of a journey. Many of their sake are aged in the bottle at low temperatures for several years. Furthermore, a variety of Tamagawa sake are made in the labour intense yamahai and kimoto method.
