月桂冠 Products from Gekkeikan
The brewery was founded in 1637 in Fushimi, an area in Kyoto famous for its high quality underground water. The name "Gekkeikan" means laurel wreath, a symbol of victory and glory. In 1909, the brewery opened the Sake Brewing Research Institute, the first one established by a sake brewer. They adopted new technologies such as bottled sake without preservatives and all-season sake brewing.
