The Sawaya sake brewery was founded in 1791 by Matsumoto Jibee I in Higashiyama, Kyoto. It added another location in Fushimi in 1923. Drawn to the Fushimi location by its clear spring water, the company began producing a Junmai Ginjo sake called Momo no Shizuku in 1983. The sake has a deep, satisfying flavor that has been well received. The company is aware of the importance of Japanese sake as a part of the national culture, and continues to produce excellent Kyoto sake to this day.
