Defining the Art of Sake Brewing

Our expansive portfolio reflects Takara’s mastery of the art of sake brewing. From our Berkeley, California brewery, our products include the flagship “Sho Chiku Bai” brand of premium sake, flavored sake, plum wine and mirin, all of which are crafted with traditional techniques, modern technology and the highest standards. Also, we import specialty sake and shochu from our sister breweries and distilleries in Japan, where Takara’s expertise and position as the industry leader has been widely recognized for over 180 years.   

Takara Sake USA Inc. partners with the New York Mets to bring Japanese sake to fans at Citi Field. Learn more.
