INTRODUCTION TO NOBU AND HOKUSETSU
Nobu’s first experience of Hokusetsu Sake was when a friend Eikichi Yazawa, the Japanese rock musician, brought a bottle over to America from Japan. After tasting the chilled Hokusetsu Sake, Nobu was amazed with how good the sake tasted, and so decided that he wanted it on his menu. With the help of a trading firm that Nobu used to import fish for his restaurants, they managed to persuade Hokusetsu to limit their exports to Nobu alone, and they agreed.
Nobu soon took on more and more of Hokusetsu’s products, until all his restaurants in the U.S., Europe and even Japan stock Hokusetsu products only.
INTRODUCTION TO HOKUSETSU
Sado Island is the largest Island in the Sea of Japan. It is famous for its harsh cold winters and of course Hokusetsu – Nobu’s preferred Sake brewery. The Hazu family started as purveyors of Sake and other alcoholic beverages in 1871 and has been brewing its own brews since 1886. In 1993 the brewery adopted the name Hokusetsu, which means’ Northern Snow’.
Hokusetsu has been awarded many of Japan’s coveted prizes for the brewing of their uncompromisingly dry Sake. The brewery maintains the highest of traditional Sake brewing, although the company has accepted and utilized many of the state-of-art technology and has developed creative storage techniques, some inspired by tales of Sake folklore.
