Born in Okayama, he takes great pride in his motherland’s national beverage—saké. His dream is for Americans to appreciate his selection of saké for its superior quality. Taka oversees all operations and maintains strong alliances with our breweries in Japan.
ONE MAN’S PRIDE.
Takahiro Tokura was disheartened at how saké was treated as a novelty beverage in the United States. A lack of legitimately great brands was ruining America’s perception and reduced saké to being taken in shots as a harsh tasting drink. He founded the company in 2003 with a chip on his shoulder to introduce the greatest tasting saké to the world.
