Established in 1889 with the motto "A good sake knows a good morning." We are committed to "making delicious sake" based on our philosophy of "making people happy through delicious sake."
At Momokawa, 95% of the rice used is from Aomori Prefecture. The brewing water is from the Oirase River system that runs near the brewery and the liqueur is made from apples, a specialty of Aomori.
During the brewery tour, you will be welcomed by an "Osugidama" (large cedar ball) 2 meters in diameter displayed at the entrance, and a guide will show you around the brewery and processing plant. You can also sample Momokawa’s signature Daiginjo and liqueur at the Oirasse Koryukaikan (Community Center), which are available for purchase as well.
