Story of Kakuida

The name ?Kakuida? comes from the underground reservoir of water in Kagoshima Prefecture, Japan.

It contains special mineral properties integral to the process of making Kakuida?s high quality kurozu. In addition to Kakuida-drawn groundwater from the local pyroclastic plateau, kurozu is also brewed with these two essential ingredients: brown rice, and koji (a type of fungus which grows on rice).

All three are added into handmade ceramic jars, and placed in open fields, to receive sunlight as part of the fermentation and aging process. The mixture in the jars are ever so often stirred and inspected for quality control. This process takes about three years or more to create the subtle flavor and nuanced aroma that is associated with Kurozu.

Fukuyama Kurozu Co., Ltd. is the producer of the ?Kakuida? brand. It is the second largest producer in Kagoshima, with around 20,000 jars of Kurozu at different stages of ageing.
