Crafted by the Fuij Brewery in the town of Izumo, Joto Yuzu is a blend of sake and Yuzu juice from Yuzu fruit that is grown locally. Yuzu is a prized Japanese citrus fruit that has the sweet and tart flavors of mandarin orange, Meyer lemon and Key lime. Blended with sake, Joto Yuzu is a delicious balance of sweetness and acidity.

This drinks like a cocktail straight out of the bottle! Pleasantly citrusy with a touch of sweet, this is perfect over ice, with a splash of sparkling water.

About the producer

Izumo Fuji

Unlike most craft breweries whose ownership can be traced back several generations over centuries, the Fuji Sake Brewery has a shorter but no less compelling history.  The current president and brewmaster Toshiaki’s grandfather was working as a brewer for the previous family when its business began to fail. There were no other family members to step in so Imaoka-san’s grandfather stayed and turned the business around. He brokered a deal with the previous owners and made it his own.

Today, the Fuji Brewery is a strong and friendly family business. The brewery is bursting with energy, talent, success, and respect. In the summer of 2022, Imaoka-san will oversee a major renovation to expand capacity and upgrade equipment. Imaoka-san works as the toji with his tight and nimble team. In addition to Izumo Fuji, they make Joto Yuzu and Umeshu.
