The Kondo Brewery
Founded in 1865, the Kondo Brewery is located near the famous peak of Echigo Gosen, Mt. Suganadake, from which the rich spring "Doppara Shimizu" is drawn when it is clearest during the year, on the 9th day after the onset of cold weather. The water drawn on this day, which is called "Kanku" ("cold+9"), is supposed to be the best for brewing sake, and as the brewers' precept goes, "you need the best water and the best rice".
Perhaps this is why Kondo sake is also popular as a table sake, accompanying dishes. The brewery's Junmai Ginjo "Koshi no Karoku" sake even appears in the fourth volume of the famous food manga "Oishimbo" as a sake that goes very well with snails, for which it is difficult to find a matching wine.
To be consumed in moderation.
