Founded in 1872 It has Maintained the “Suigei” Brand Since its Foundation A Brewery Filled with Brewers’ Passions
Nagahama-gura is located in Nagahama, Kochi City, near the scenic Katsurahama beach that overlooks the magnificent Pacific Ocean. This is the brewery where Suigei has produced sake since its foundation. Nagahama-gura is also on the renowned Pilgrimage Road of the Eighty Eight Temples in Shikoku and is easily accessible from the metropolitan area of Kochi City. In 1969, we succeeded from the sake brewery founded on this spot in 1872, and established Suigei Brewing Co., Ltd. to continue this sake brewing heritage. It is an old-fashioned brewery, and we inherit their historical sake brewing traditions, brewers’ spirits, and efforts toward innovation. Here at Nagahama-gura, we produce Suigei’s regular items such as “Tokubetsu Junmai” and “Junmai Ginjo Ginrei”. In particular, Junmai Ginjo Ginrei, is Nagahama-gura’s representative sake that exhibits a distinctive acidity and refreshing taste—both characteristics are Suigei’s biggest charms. From among many sake rice varieties we chose Ginpu variety rice harvested in Hokkaido to produce Ginrei’s rich and mellow taste.
