Fujioka Shuzo is an incredibly small brewery with Fujioka-san personally overseeing each step of the labor and time intensive process to produce a truly handmade sake. In 2002, 5th generation Masaaki Fujioka re-opened the brewery establishing the new Sake brand “SOOKUU” aiming to brew a Sake with its taste reflecting a gentle clear blue sky. Fushimi is nationally known in Japan for its refined water that gives SOOKUU its distinctive silky taste.
