Ito Sake Brewery has a warehouse near the Kuzuryu River, the family temple of the Fukui domain, "Daianzenji". From the Meiji era to the Taisho era, brewed sake was carried by riverboat from the river to Mikuni Bay, and from there, the transportation industry such as Kyoto and Niigata thrive.
In recent years, the brewery has been involved in sake brewing as Mr. Mori himself, has been producing sake that directly brings out the brewery's character. As a result, "Dry Junmai Ginjo" and "Sake Junmai Ginjo" were all unique and sharp Junmai Ginjo, and rich and fruity Junmai Ginjo was developed.

Ito Sake brewing takes advantage of Fukui's climate with sake rice and water, from the great nature of Fukui - fully drawing out the aroma of Junmai Ginjo and the umami of rice.
