Interview with Katsuyama brewery Tôji (brewmaster): Mr. Goto

Q: 1. What developments in the Sake World are you currently finding particularly interesting? 

A: I've been making sake for 20 years now. During this time, the world of sake has changed a lot. The sake and also pairing variations have increased very much. Everything used to be very strict, especially the style of sake. Today they release one new, unusual sake after another on the market. Katsuyama sake should of course be able to keep up. The sake, which we produce here one can drink particularly well to the western cuisine. It's a very interesting development that sake is brewed much more often so that it goes well with western cuisine.

Q: 1. What developments in the Sake World are you currently finding particularly interesting? 

A: What has changed so far is the production of generally more premium sake rather than simple, cheap sake as well as the increased production of Sparkling Sake which is becoming more and more popular.

Interview with Brewery Owner (Kuramoto): Sotaro Kinoshita 

Q: 1. What developments in the Sake World are you currently finding particularly interesting?
