Our brewery was founded in Kumihama township in the Kyotango region of Kyoto Prefecture in 1842, where we have made sake ever since.
Our brand name, Tamagawa, can be translated as “Jewel River”, and is thought to derive from the Kawakamidani River which flows by the brewery.
The character 川 (kawa or gawa in compound words) is an ideogram showing the flow of a river, which is what it means.
Tama (玉) means an orb or a jewel, and by extension expresses the idea of precious beauty.
It is thought that the name reflects the reverence in which our ancestors held rivers and water in the Shinto tradition.

Time is our secret ingredient

Tamagawa sake is fun because it never stays the same. For us, freshly pressed sake is only the start of the journey.
You can taste Tamagawa products in their untouched, untreated form as we ship the "3U" editions, but we also offer thoroughly aged versions of many to show the captivating developments of flavour that only come with time.
