Akishika Okarakuchi "Super Dry"

Akishika Brewery is situated in mountains between Kyoto and Osaka in the Kansai region of Japan�s main island, a rich land of terraced rice paddies and dense bamboo forests. All of the rice used at Akishika Brewery is locally grown, contracted to local farmers committed to �bio-dynamic� (junkan) farming practices. The 6th generation brewery owner of Akishika, Oku-san, is also proud to have pioneered new methods of seasonal composting and flooding of the fields that enable him to grow all his rice naturally, without additives or chemical pest control. Akishika is a very small brewery: a staff of just 5 people work during the winter months to produce the year�s sake.
