Junmai Daiginjo Kotsuzumi ETO Label - Celebrating the Culmination of the Year of the Rabbit

Nishiyama Brewery: A Legacy Since 1849


Nestled in the picturesque mountains of the Hyogo prefecture, Nishiyama Brewery stands as a testament to tradition and excellence in the world of sake. Established in 1849, the brewery has a rich history and a commitment to producing high-quality sake that has stood the test of time.


The Inspiration Behind "Kotsuzumi"


The name "Kotsuzumi" finds its roots in the poetic description by Kyoshi Takahama, a renowned poet who, upon tasting Nishiyama Sake, likened it to a kotsuzumi—a beautiful ancient small hand drum. This poetic connection adds a layer of artistry to the sake, reflecting the cultural significance embedded in each bottle.


Artistry in Every Label: Hirosuke Watanuki's Touch

The marriage of traditional craftsmanship with contemporary artistry elevates the aesthetic appeal of Nishiyama Brewery's offerings.


Brewing Excellence: Small Batches for Consistency


To maintain a standard of excellence and freshness, Nishiyama Brewery follows the practice of brewing in small batches throughout the year. According to Kotsuzumi’s Toji, this meticulous approach ensures that each bottle delivers a consistent and exceptional taste, making every sip a delightful experience.
