Sakuramasamune is a premium saké brewery located in Nada, district in Kobe, one of the largest regions of sake breweries in Japan. Since 1625, always under the direction of the Yamamura family - currently the 11th generation - they strive for the best quality saké.
Remarkably, the Sakuramasamune yeast was selected by the Japanese Sake Brewers Association (Nihon Jozo Kyokai) in 1907 as "Sake Yeast Kyokai No.1". In 1910, the 8th head of the family founded the "Yamamura Sake-Brewing Laboratory", the first private research institute in Japan.
