What is your emphasis in brewing Sake?
We emphasise taste rather than aroma.

In 100 words or less tell us what is Asahikiku’s appeal?
We get our water from an underground tributary of Kyushū’s largest river Chikugo-gawa, which originates from Mt.Aso.
Our rice is locally grown (Fukuoka prefecture) Sake rice, Yamada Nishiki and Yume Yikkon.
In order to allow low temp fermentation we brew in winter. The finished Sake is soft and gentle, yet still has a solid flavour, and goes very well with meals.
