IPPIN HISTORY

 

Ippin sake is produced by Yoshikubo brewery  in Japan's Ibaraki prefecture. Our  brewery was founded in 1790 and is currently being run by our twelfth president, Hiroyuki "Seizaburo" Yoshikubo. The Yoshikubo Family has been brewing fine sake for 12 generations using only the very best ingredients. We use the crystal clear water from our hometown of Mito to create a drink with the perfect balance of umami and acidity.

Our motto is simple: brew delicious Sake. It's not about sweetness or dryness, it's all about taste!

 

1790 Our founder, Seizaburo Yoshikubo, established the Awanoya brewery. What was once a rice wholesale store became a sake brewery. 
1945 The building was burned down in an air attack on Mito during the war.
1949 Awanoya was rebuilt and brewing started again.
1952 Awanoya became Yoshikubo brewing Co, Ltd and continued to brew delicious sake using the same traditional methods.
2012 The current president is Hiroyuki "Seizaburo" Yoshikubo 12th.
