“Momo no Shizuku”(Drewdrops of Peach)
There is an old temple near Matsumoto Brewery called Saiganji.
In the Edo era, Basho Matsuo, the famous haiku (Japanese poet) writer wrote a phrase, “On my silk rob put a drop of the peaches of Fushimi”. In those days, Fushimi (the location where Matsumoto Brewery resides), was famous for their peaches.
Basho referred the peach to his friendly dying holy priest,
expressed that he wants to receive the shower of the holy man’s virtue on his own robe – even one drop. This beautiful passage shows Basho’s respect and warm mind.
We share Basho’s sentiment and named our product (“Momo(Peach) no Shizuku(Drewdrop)” whose taste and flavor
we had nurtured with attentive care, after this haiku.
“Momo no Shizuku”, is characterized by its rich and graceful taste created by the high quality rice and its delicate fruity aroma created by the rich flavor of the koji (roce malt) and kobo (yeast).
“Momo no shizuku Shiboritate”
