Chitosetsuru, a local sake brewer in Sapporo

Savor locally brewed Chitosetsuru sake from Sapporo

Chitosetsuru is the only local sake brewery in Sapporo. This smooth sake features a clean texture and a fresh aftertaste. Hokkaido has a cool climate with little humidity, so fermentation is restrained and it is easy to produce sake with a refreshing, dry flavor. Chitosetsuru is made from water created by the vast natural world of Hokkaido, which lends the finished product a uniquely deep flavor. The predecessor of Nipponseishu Co., Ltd., which manufacturers Chitosetsuru, was Shibata Shuzoten. This brewery was the first to produce sake in Sapporo in 1872. The adjoining Chitosetsuru Sake Museum offers sake sampling, mainly ginjo, junmai, and honjozo varieties. It also carries sake that is only available at the brewery and seasonal products, so it’s the perfect place for learning about the sake of Sapporo.
