After launching in a limited number of LCBO stores in a Vintages release in September, Izumi Namacho Junmai Sake is now offered on a continuously available basis at 70 LCBO locations as of today, with more stores receiving shipments soon.  The following link provides updated store locations:


In most LCBO stores our sake can be found together with all the other sakes adjacent to the fortified wines section, however several stores merchandise our sake in the Vintages department.  If you do not find it please ask an LCBO staff member for Product #260174. 

For a full range of our sakes, as well as holiday gift baskets and other interesting sake-related items please visit our brewery store in Toronto’s Distillery District.

Best Holiday Wishes!

We are currently (Dec. 16) pressing Batch #15, which is available for tasting at the bar. This batch has turned out great and is quite distinct from the sakes we have made thus far. It is initially soft on the palate, has fruity notes with underlying sweetness, and has a quick, strong, dry finish.

If you have time this weekend, please stop by the brewery for a taste of this fresh sake. The Distillery District Christmas Market is in full swing, and we also have a full assortment of sake gift packs for that sake lover (or soon to be) you know, ready for under the tree.

Happy Holidays!
