About us 大田酒造について


Founded 1892 (Meiji 25) in the center of the rural Iga basin, where white cranes are often seen flying high in the sky.
Our rice is locally produced in the fields surrounding our brewery.
The rice we use is grown with special techniques developed in the Iga area of Mie Prefecture.
All products under the Hanzo Brand are carefully hand-made.


It’s said the Hattori family worked for Iga Ninja for many generations.
Masashige Hattori, later known to all as “Hanzo”, was born 1542.
His father, Yasunaga, served under Lords Ashikaga, Matsudaira and Tokugawa.
After his father’s death, Hanzo served Tokugawa Ieyasu,ruler of Japan as the leader of the Iga samurai.
It is said that he also controlled the Iga Ninja and Koga Ninja, and was frequently rewarded by the lord for his valuable services.
The “Hanzo Gate” in Edo Castle, presently the Emperor’s Palace, was named after him.
