About Isobe Liquor Store

Founded in Meiji 18.

Located in Takahata, Kofu City, Yamanashi Prefecture, which is rich in nature, Isobe Liquor Store sells sake, shochu, and local wine.

 “I want to pass on the knowledge of sake and Japanese culture to the wonderful sake breweries and brewers around the world.”

I want to offer sake that satisfies customers who visit our store.”

With that thought in mind, we have been selling sake to various people from 1885 to the present.

Sake that connects the times

The history of sake has a long history, and it actually counts thousands of years. Among them, wine and beer have the longest history. Beer originated more than 4,000 BC, when humans started farming in Mesopotamia, and yeast entered the porridge of barley that had been left for a long time, allowing it to naturally ferment. The origin of wine is the same Mesopotamia region. In the Mesopotamian heroic poem "The Epic of Gilgamesh", there is a sentence describing events around 5000-4000 B.C., in which it is written that wine was given. Many stories about sake appear in Manyoshu.

That's why we want to connect sake culture

In recent years, Japanese sake has become known overseas as “sake”.

From now on, 10 years, 50 years, 100 years, 1000 years from now, we at Isobe Saketen will continue to deliver sake to the world in order to connect the times and culture to the next generation.
