(a converation with Mr.Yu below)


Can you give us a reason why you decided to do the old tradition rice wine?

"My house was the head family house on the major blood line. Our family members had to prepare a lot of different types of family event that we also need to make our own version of rice wine to treat visitors"

I believed that the quality of the rice wine of our family was outstanding enough to make it into a serious business so I finally decided to found the brewery after the family name."


"Yakju (meaning “medicine liquor”) made from non-glutinous rice, glutinous rice and koji is famous for its clean taste and has already established its own reputation"
