Raised in the heart of a sake producing region on the west coast of Japan, Naohiko Noguchi has followed in the footsteps of his master brewer father and grandfather. From snow clad mountains to lush rice fields, his homeland Ishikawa has everything needed to brew the perfect SAKE as well as the abundant seafood to go with. Noguchi once decided to retire, but his enthusiasm brought him back to continue his pursuit of excellence as a “Toji”, master brewer.
