Introducing … Morishima Shuzo!

Located right on the coast of Ibaraki prefecture, this tiny little brewery on the coast of Ibaraki has been producing some amazing sake over the past few years, showcasing a variety of rice types and styles through their fresh, zippy, and modern sake. Since the brand’s release in 2019, Morishima has skyrocketed in popularity both domestically and abroad, taking out numerous awards including Australian Sake Awards 2022 Gold and People’s Choice Awards, selling out in Japan, and never lasting more than a few weeks on the shelves at the Oak Barrel.

With this counter tasting, The Oak Barrel officially will launch Morishima as a core brand with a special guest appearance Shizuko Tanaka from Morishima to introduce their range and share the story of Morishima’s history, from their humble beginnings way back in 1869, through their trials and tribulations through WWII and the 2011 Earthquake, and on to their modern revitalisation and success. It’s a story of introspection and perseverance, and at the end of it all it’s made some truly great sake.

– Morishima Hitachinishiki Karakuchi Junmai Ginjo Nama Genshu
– Morishima Yamadanishiki Junmai Ginjo Nama Genshu
