We are licensed exporter of Japanese Sake and all other Japanese alcohol beverages
License for Sake export of alcohol beverages was authorized to us by Japanese National Tax Agency in 2011.
Under our liquor export license, all kinds of Japanese alcohol products can be shipped to oversea liquor importers.
Based on customer’s requests and preferences, we find and introduce a list of suitable breweries or brands and products for you, and then coordinate an export shipment by air or sea container from any port in Japan.
We work as an intermediary between an importer and a brewery to support their communication based on strong partnership.
We understand there are still challenges for increasing Sake sales in any countries in the world. Such obstacles are seen in distribution, taxation, health trend, pricing, point of sales, consumers’ mind… anywhere. Therefore close relationship and co-working among three parties [brewery, shipper, and importer] are inevitable to overcome them and be successful in this developing market.
One of the things that should be done to open sake market is to give education to consumers and people in liquor business. Having a local Sake event could be one influential solution. We support your sake event by providing promotion goods, information about sake and brewery, and having our staff at the event, and even introducing nice food parings with sake and fresh fish which we have strength in.
