 "Share a piece of Shimane with the rest of the world."
This feeling served as our inspiration that sparked this series. As the first step toward our goal, we take great pride in introducing to you our junmai sake made with Shimane-grown "Gohyakumangoku". "Gohyakumangoku", a popular rice strain specially developed for sake-brewing, is one of the most widely cultivated variety of rice in Japan and Shimane. Possessing a delicate flavor, this is a hardy type of rice that goes well with many dishes.
The sake we crafted shares the refreshing smoothness and gentle aroma of this special type of rice. Served at your preferred temperature, please enjoy a glass of our sake as the perfect accompaniment to any of your favorite dishes.

We look forward to seeing you and to sharing kanpai in Australia!

IZUMO JIDENSHU: Sake for Cooking

Brewery | UPDATE: 2016'06'20

The Izumo Jidenshu is a unique sake that has been brewed in the Izumo region in eastern Shimane. Originally made to drink, it was later used in cooking. In the 1930s it was still brewed by only four breweries, but production was discontinued during the wartime.  

In 1989, the Matsue Chamber of Commerce and Industry launched "the Matsue Way Association" (Matsue Ryu no kai) for the promotion of the local specialities. The idea of reviving Izumo Jidenshu was proposed, and after extensive research and trial brewing, Izumo Jidenshu was revived after a half century hiatus, and brewed here at Yoneda Sake Brewery.

This Izumo Jidenshu has arrived in Europe!
