Founded in 1842, Kinoshita Sake Brewery is known for their Tamagawa sake brand. Immediately after taking his position with Kinoshita, master brewer Philip Harper, the industry's first non-Japanese master brewer, began production on raw sake and natural yeast sake products. Branded as "naturally prepared sake," these products contributed to Kinoshita Sake Brewery's name recognition due to their unique taste. Currently, master brewer Harper is actively working on the long-term aging of sake.
