Fumimoto Sake Brewery was founded in 1903 and was stated as the best sake brewery in town.
At that time, there were about eight sake breweries, but now only Fumimoto Sake Brewery is remaining in the area.
At first, Irikoma was their signature brand but later on they made a brand new one called Momotaro. It is their signature brand since 1966.
A Sake For All
The name “Momotaro” was chosen by the people living in the town.
When you hear the locals talking about Momotaro in the town, they are referring to Fumimoto Sake Brewery.
In general, when Japanese people talk about Tosa’s sake, they often describe them as dry (karakuchi in Japanese) but Momotaro’s sakes are actually more sweet and it’s really appreciated by the Japanese women.
Drinking Momotaro’s sake at cold temperature is exceptional. Even for people who don’t particularly drink sake, the aroma is incredibly good.
We could compare it with people who are not used to drink wine. In general, people tend to choose white wine over red because it’s “easier” to drink.
They wanted have the desire to be a sake widely loved by the young people and the elderly.
Quality and consistency
Kensuke Fumimoto is the 4th generation sake master brewer and devotes himself to make Momotaro sakes.
He continues to brew his sake in the local area in a small quantity. His mission is to maintain the quality of his production and keep its genuine taste.
