- Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan
Fukucho’s female brewery owner, Miho Imada, is also the Toji (master brewer in English) – a rarity in Japan to have both jobs done by the same person. There are around 30 female tojis in Japan, but when Miho-san started brewing there were far fewer. Her extreme dedication to her craft encourages the future of women in this industry.
Miho-san’s passion and curiosity for sake brewing is truly amazing: to date she has revived a local heirloom rice that was out of use for hundreds of years, created her own hybrid yeast starter, and experimented with brewing sake using white koji.
Fukucho is imported by Vine Connections - the leading artisan Japanese sake importer in the US
