Brewery Description

The Ichishima head family immigrated into the Shibata area in 1598 accompanied by the lord of the Shibata Clan, Sir Mizoguchi, who was transferred from Kagadaishoji to the Shibata clan. 

In the 1790s, thefirst owner, Hidematsu Ichishima, moved out from the head family and started a sake production site where Aumont brewery now exists. The very first sake brand was named “Suwa-Mori” after the Suwa Shrine which stands in front of the brewery. Successive brewery owners were keen to learn and socialized with people rich in knowledge. From this experience, they trained young people and helped to develop Shibata’s culture.
