About our Logo
【 YURIMIZU・HISHI 】
The inspiration behind our brewery's logo is “water”
Water is life. Water is a blessing. Since time immemorial it has been giving life as it
flows in a never-ending cycle between the heavens and the earth. And yet, water
also possesses an almost magical, ferocious power, to carve meandering rivers,
weather cliffs, and move boulders.
It is only by using such rich, pure water that we Japanese have been able to brew
our precious, delicious sake. In the brewery name, we find repeated a symbol
representing three drops of water (氵) and the character signifying water (水), as
if to portend our destiny to brew great sake.
Moreover, each of the three waves that make up the new logo holds its own
symbolism: one for the creator of the sake, one for the supplier of the sake, and
one for drinker of the sake.
It is through the efforts of these three entities working in harmony that the taste of
sake be transformed into pleasure, the true value of our craft.
Flowing yet powerful, this new design expresses our gratitude to all those involved in this process.
