Rokkon refers to the six senses of vision, hearing, smell, taste, touch and consciousness. The sakes the fall under the Rokkon brand can be enjoyed with the five senses and the heart. This unique brand of sake is made from using high-quality mother liquor produced at Matsumidori sake brewery - a brewery that has been specializing in making mother liquors since its establishment. The sakes are made with the soft underflowing water of Shirakami Suikei Iwakisan.
The Matsumidori Brewery is located in Hirosaki city near Hirosaki Castle, an area known for its magnificent cherry blossoms in spring. The sake brewing process begins in late autumn, and continues through the winter when the brewery is enveloped in freezing temperatures and deep snow.
