Imada Shuzo is the only brewery using Hattanso - a local rice variety originated from Hiroshima - for making sake. The quality rice in addition to the soft water in the prefecture gives Fukucho sakes a smooth and mellow flavour. Besides, the brewery bottles their sake immediately after pressing and only pasteurize once. This practice helps preserve the aroma and freshness of sake.
