Japanese Sake from Rikyugura
Sake is usually brewed in three stages, and it is extremely rare to find a brewery that uses eight stages. Theoretically, this method is more likely to produce a sweet sake, but it requires more than twice as many steps as usual.
However, we are the ones who go through this enormous process in pursuit of the sweet sake that is typical of Sakai. This is the Rikyu brewery's attitude towards sake brewing and an expression of its beliefs.
