IWC 2016 Gold Award Winner (Sake): Fudoh
Fudoh sake is produced by Nabedana, one of the oldest breweries in Japan that has been crafting superior sake in Narita city, near Naritasan Shinshoji Temple, since 1689. With 324 years of sake-making history, the Nabedana brewery has earned the proud distinction of being the oldest sakemaking family in eastern Japan.
The town of Edo (now Tokyo) has grown into one of the largest cities in the world with a population reaching one million by the 18th century since Ieyasu Tokugawa, the first Shogun, moved his capitol to Edo in 1603.
Today, Nabendana Brewery is run by Kan Otsuka, the 19th generation in the family, and Fudoh sake is offered as the sacred sake for Buddha in Naritasan Shinshoji, one of the three biggest temples in eastern Japan.
Wines N Spirits is proud to offer three famous Fudoh sakes:
