Chiyomusubi’s essential ingredients

Brewing sake

Tottori prefecture is surrounded by abundant nature and is blessed with famous water and good quality rice. We appreciate the environment where the conditions for sake brewing are met, and we mainly prepare carefully selected local ingredients.

Best rice
The rice comes directly from rice farmers mostly in the Tottori prefecture. The main types used for our brewing are “Goriki”, “Yamadanishiki”, and “Gohyakumangoku”. We value the relationship with the farmers.

Goriki rice

“Goriki”(strong power) is the special sake rice cultivated only in Tottori prefecture where Chiyomusubi Sake Brewery is located. Cultivation of the rice had been stopped once because of its difficulty. Goriki’s cultivation revived in the 1980’s. Now, Goriki is cultivated only by specially registered farmers to preserve its purity. Sake made from Goriki has a very unique character, rich taste, gentle aroma, and performs well in aging. Chiyomusubi is proud of their sake made from Goriki.

Mountain water

Clear mountain water

The water used is the local natural water that is known to those in the know, which springs up in Daito-cho at the foot of the remote Chugoku Mountains. Every day in our brewing season, we go to the water spring in the depths of the mountains to get the water for sake brewing. It takes about 3 hours per round trip. The quality of the water is slightly soft, matching our flavours.
