In 1936, Yamamoto Kanzo I established a brewery from a warehouse he had inherited in the beautiful environs of Fushimi, his mission being to produce top-quality sake. Over time, and in line with the demands of the market, the taste of the sake being produced has swung from sweet to dry, but Takatori persists in maintaining traditional flavors across all types of sake that carry the Takatori name. The company makes sure it listens to the opinions of its customers as it works tirelessly day in, day out, to preserve the traditions and techniques of sake making in Fushimi.
