Purposeパーパス : 存在意義
Raising the value of "dining time"
with a taste that only Shikishima can produce
The concept behind the deliciousness of "Shikishima" is what is commonly referred to as "shoku-chu-shu. Our goal is to create a sake that will not only let the flavors of the meal flow, but also catch them, sublimate the flavors as the meal and sake combine in the mouth, and make you reach for the next sake and the next rice dish. In order to achieve this, we melt the rice thoroughly during the manufacturing process to create a sake with enough thickness to catch the taste of the meal, while finishing it off with a fine acidity and a minerality derived from the high-quality brewing water. A meal is a colorful moment in the hectic pace of daily life. Nothing would make us happier than to have Shikishima beside our customers at those moments.
Visionビジョン : 描きたい未来
Shikishima will continue to be near food
and will be a standard sake for 200 years.
The private brewery that brews "Shikishima" was founded in 1788 during the Edo period (1603-1868). In the Taisho era (1912-1926), it was the only sake brewery in the jurisdiction of the Nagoya Taxation Bureau (four Tokai prefectures, Nagano Prefecture, and Niigata Prefecture) to be ranked as a "yokozuna," or "grand champion," and was a representative of the Chubu region. However, more than 200 years after its establishment, the brewery was destined to close its doors for a time in the Heisei era (Heisei era), and after a blank of more than 20 years, it was born anew in 2020. We will continue to brew sake for the next 200 years, and will continue to make and pass on sake that will accompany everyone's daily meals. We put our heart and soul into our brewing so that our sake can be enjoyed as a regular, delicious sake that is always close at hand.

Beverages that make meals taste better.
The concept of Shikishima taste is "food sake". It is a sake that is delicious on its own, but can be enjoyed even more when paired with a meal. It is characterized by its flavor and sharpness, which enhances the taste of the food and the snacks. We make many different types of sake, but they all share the same characteristics. We will continue to focus on pairing sake with food.
