Kizan is a new high-quality junmai brand that was introduced in 1997 by Chikuma Nishiki brewery.
Chikuma Nishiki brewery is located in the center of Nagano Prefecture. This is a perfect location for Sake brewing because of it's naturally cold location amid some of Japan’s tallest mountain ranges. From crystal clear water, fresh cold mountain air and great rice, Nagano has the perfect ingredients for producing fantastic Sake. Chikuma Nishiki has a long brewing history dating back to 1681. The kura (brewery) is built around 4 wells sourced from the Chikuma River which provide soft water perfect for sake brewing. They use the famous local rice called Miyama Nishiki for their Sake brewing because of it’s large plump uniform grain and it’s ability to grow evenly in the extremely cold areas of Nagano.
