“Mononofu no Sato” is brew prepared by Fujinishiki Brewery in Shibakawa Cho for a group of sake lovers in Susono City, at the bottom of Mount Fuji. As there is no brewery in Susono City, the Association for the Promotion of Sake in Susono City asked Fujinishiki to produce sake made exclusively with rice grown in Susono and water collecte in the same city. This year’s particular batch was made in July.
