The sake “Miyoshi” was created at a sake brewery in Japan’s Yamaguchi Prefecture that was revived for the first time in approximately 30 years.
It is priced at 3,240 yen.
It is sold at reputable liquor stores in both Yamaguchi and Tokyo Prefectures.
A limited winter brew of 344 bottles featuring a snowman motif went on sale in December of 2017. Miyoshi includes 4 bottles: “Black”, “White”, “Green” and “Miyoshi Winter”.
Along with being the name of the 6th generation inheritor of the brewery, who worked to revive it, the name “Miyoshi”, by including the number “3”, also uses Chinese characters to express the importance of that number to sake brewing.
The number “3” bears its importance in sake brewing through the 3 ingredients of koji (starter mold), rice and water, as well as through the 3 groups of sellers, buyers, and the world at large; all of whom are indispensable for sake brewing. This number 3 is displayed as a logo on the brewery’s aprons, signs, and posters.
