Bases for Overseas Alcoholic Beverages Business

Takara Sake USA Inc. (U.S.A.)

In the 30 years since our establishment, we at Takara Sake USA have been producing sake with U.S.-sourced rice and water. Our constant efforts to enhance our products under the strictest quality control were ultimately rewarded in 2011 when we received a gold medal for domestically produced sake at the U.S. National Sake Appraisal. In addition to Sho Chiku Bai Classic, our flagship brand of junmai-shu, the Takara lineup includes fruit-flavored sake and other products developed and manufactured to fit the tastes of U.S. consumers. In addition to sake products, we also offer mirin, plum wine, and a wide range of other Japanese-style alcoholic products. More than 10,000 people come each year to visit the Sake Museum and Tasting Room at our brewery, which we operate as part of our efforts to widen appreciation of Japanese culture in general and Japan’s traditional alcoholic beverages in the U.S.

The Tomatin Distillery Co. Ltd(U.K.)

The origins of Tomatin can be traced back to the 15th century, but the modern distillery was founded in 1897 in the Scottish Highlands about 25 kilometers south of the city of Inverness in Tomatin, a small village with a population of 500. The water used to make Tomatin comes from the Alt na Frith (“stream of freedom”) running through the Monadhliath Mountains, which is fed by a spring that seeps slowly through the peat and granite, producing rich, soft water with a mildness that gives Tomatin its delicate taste. Among the villagers are those who apply their skills to preserving the traditional flavors of Tomatin, and pass down their passion and expertise to each successive generation.
