Geographical Indication (GI)

In June 2020, Mie Prefecture received the designation of Geographical Indication (GI) for its regional brand of sake. In order to receive this designation, the sake must be made with domestic rice and water collected from Mie, and be produced, stored, and bottled in Mie. After the Mie Sake Brewers Association confirms the sake is worthy of this designation, the GI logo mark can be put on the label to indicate the designation. Ota Sake Brewery is dedicated to using distinctive Mie sourced ingredients for sake production, and as a result, nine kinds of Hanzo brand sake have received the GI certification.
