The general manager of a sake brewing is called a toji. In 2018, Takaki Matsumoto was appointed as the seventh generation brewer at Shirataki Sake Brewery. He was 27 back then - a young new toji who will open up a new chapter for Shirataki Sake Brewery.
Seven is the first brand that Mr Matsumoto planned from scratch as a chief brewer.

The finest sake rice is luxuriously polished to a rice polishing ratio of 25%, and carefully brewed in small tanks during the coldest months of January and February. The mash is pressed with a traditional press called "fune" and the mash is poured into bags. The bags are laid or hanged in a fune, then the fresh sake is squeezed out naturally. No dilution with water was done to enjoy a fresh and rich taste.
