Tonoike Sake Brewery was founded in 1937 by Itsugoro Tonoike, whose family began brewing sake in Tochigi Prefecture in 1829. In addition to sake, this brewery also produces a variety of items made from rice including shochu, liqueurs, doburoku, and sake cosmetics.
We also focus on exporting our products overseas. As of 2020, we have shipped our products to 13 countries (Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, Vietnam, Malaysia, the United Kingdom, Austria, France, Italy, the United States, Canada, and Australia).
Our high-quality sake, produced using traditional techniques, has won numerous awards both in Japan and abroad.
Additionally, we ranked fourth in the 2019 World Sake Brewery Rankings, a ranking of sake breweries’ compiled scores from domestic and international contests.
