Japan's tradition of sake making began more than 2,000 years ago shortly after rice cultivation was introduced from China. Though the first few centuries yielded a beverage quite unlike that of today, years of experience perfected brewing techniques and increased sake's overall appeal and popularity. Gekkeikan Sake (USA) , Inc. was established in Folsom, California in 1989. Dedicated just as the company's founder was over 370 years ago, both Gekkeikan Japan and Gekkeikan USA continue the tradition of both taste and quality.
Visit Gekkeikan's state-of-the-art brewery, beautiful koi pond and Japanese garden. The tasting room offers complimentary tasting of "Kobai", Gekkeikan's latest plum wine, as well as a variety of locally produced sakes. There are a number of unique snack and gift items for sale, such as sake sets, Japanese dishes, dolls, and sushi-making accessories.
