In 1989, Gekkeikan established a state-of-the-art sake brewing facility in Folsom, California. Folsom was found to offer just the right conditions: high-quality water and an abundance of rice -- the perfect setting for a skilled brewmaster backed by fourteen generations of sake brewing experience. Constantly evolving to deliver greater satisfaction.
For nearly four centuries since its founding in 1637, Gekkeikan has been crafting sake using the same two basic ingredients: high-quality rice, and the soft, perfectly balanced mineral water of Fushimi. Having evolved alongside the culture and cuisine of Japan's ancient capital city of Kyoto, Gekkeikan's sake is as elegant and refined as the culture. The taste of Kyoto, directly imported into the United States.
