Sake of Rihaku Shuzo
Mr. Yuichiro Tanaka, the president of Rihaku Shuzo in Matsue city, Shimane Prefecture. He told us about Rihaku’s Sake. Their aim is to make Sake which “everyone can enjoy with a meal” and “goes well with food”.
He believes that it’s his role not only to make Sake but also to spread the Sake culture widely and hand over it.
Shimane Pref. has mountains, the sea and a large lake, and such nature produces a wide range of food.
Mr. Tanaka likes to drink Rihaku’s Sake with highly seasoned dishes. Let’s try it!
We are looking forward to your message “This dish was good with Rihaku!”
Q. Recommendation for beginners

Q. Food for Sake lover
As a manufacturer, I’m really happy that you feel as if our Sake is your family. Our theme is “Sake matching with dishes”, that means “Sake that will be gradually drunk up at table”.
Q. What kind of food does Rihaku’s Sake go well with?
Shimane Pref. has mountains, the sea and a large lake with a fairly wide range of ingredients, so their Sake fits in anything.
Also, we can catch delicious Japanese horse mackerel. Both grilled and raw horse mackerels are tasty.
In addition, Shimane is famous for shijimi (freshwater clams). Steamed in Sake or butter baked shijimi are very good.
However, not only shijimi but also many kinds of shellfish go well with Sake. We recommend well-seasoned food too.
