The brewery was established in 1902, and the Nanbu Bijin brand name came to be in 1951. The Iwate area used to be called Nanbu (South), and is a place rich with nature, abundant water and fertile soil. In Japan, most breweries of the time made quite rough, inelegant, sweet sake, but this brewery wanted to make clean & beautiful sake like a fair southern maiden. Hence, the name Nanbu Bijin, or Southern Beauty. The brewery’s goal is to produce Sake that makes one full of smile like the sun when drinking it. Aiming to merge the traditional craft and young passion and energy, Nanbu Bijin Co., Ltd. will continue on taking the challenges of supreme Sake brewing.
